See How Americans Have Responded One Year After the Fall of Kabul


September 01, 2022


Welcome.US was created in response to an extraordinary challenge: resettling close to 100,000 Afghan allies fleeing Taliban-controlled Afghanistan with a government system that had welcomed just over 11,000 refugees the year before. A mere six months later, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine drove millions of Ukrainians to flee their homes. We needed to build a system that could not only meet the specific challenges brought on by these crises, but one with durable capacity and the resilience to meet the next moment of crisis that we know will inevitably come. We needed a whole-of-society response; a truly American effort. Welcome.US is the story of how the American people rose to meet an unprecedented challenge: this is what we’ve built together over the last 365 days.
