Would you like to support Afghan families that are now in Oklahoma?
Over 1,800 people from Afghanistan have been relocated to Oklahoma, most are families, and about 1,000 residing in Oklahoma City. They receive a modest setup for their home, but there a tangible ways that we can assist them.
Many have requested vacuum cleaners, sewing machines, and pressure cookers or instapots to provide some comforts in their new homes.
We have created an Amazon wishlist with these items for you to purchase, and they will be shipped directly to the family.
You can also donate to this ministry by texting STL AFGHAN to 73256.
