Please join Trinity Lutheran Church in their new mission of welcoming to our community Malalai and Mustafa Nawabi and their three small sons: Maheer (6), Mehram (3), and Maher Tash (1). They fled Afghanistan in August of 2021 as the Taliban took control of their country, literally leaving behind all their possessions and their extended family in order to provide a safer, more just environment for their children.
Please read this article to learn about all the ways Trinity Lutheran has already helped the family and a full explanation of their current financial need. The family’s current most pressing need is obtaining asylum. The church has now paid for two thirds of the lawyer’s costs ($4,000); however, they remain short on funds ($2,000 still needed). For this reason, they respectfully request that you prayerfully consider donating to this worthy cause. Checks may be made out to: Trinity Lutheran Church; 15 Randolph Ave.; Hagerstown, MD 21740. Please write “Refugee Family” on the memo line of the check.
