The US/NATO forces withdrawal from Afghanistan has brought the Taliban back into power, leading to an acute humanitarian crisis. People like “Farid” (name changed for security reasons), who have championed social activism, human rights, and progress, are now in severe danger. Their lives are being threatened, and we urgently need your help to save Farid and others like him. In the words of Farid himself, “I don’t know what will happen with me. The situation is very bad. I change my location every time I escape. But I don’t know what will happen with me. If the Taliban catches up to me, they will kill me.”
We are Redeem the Oppressed, an organization that has been operating since 2011, but our board members have been involved in this kind of work since 2006. Our history of success and our commitment to transparency are testaments to our unwavering dedication. We have partnered with Rise Agenda and Forcefield NFP to ensure mission success. Read about our past success including redeeming over 35,000 lives here.
Farid is a dedicated Social, Womens & Human Rights Activist based in Kabul, Afghanistan. He has spent the past decade working and volunteering for various human rights organizations, welfare organizations, awareness campaigns, and protests. His work, which has consistently challenged the interests of the Taliban Regime, has made him a target. With several members of his organization targeted and assassinated by the Taliban and other terrorist groups, Farid has been living in hiding for over two years.
The resurgence of the Taliban has put many Afghans at dire risk, especially those who have supported the west, worked towards human rights, women’s empowerment, and social justice. Farid and others like him are being hunted down, their homes raided, and their lives threatened. The danger is imminent, and we must act now. We are working to save 38 pre-screened families, all of whom directly worked with Pro-West forces in Afghanistan and each has a family member currently targeted by the Taliban. “Taliban got the full database of high government officials. They are targeting people… most of the government officials that weren’t killed are hidden or escaped from the Taliban by leaving the country.”
Our mission is to raise funds to aid Farid and others like him in escaping from Afghanistan and finding safety. The funds raised will cover their evacuation costs, including travel expenses, legal fees, visas and resettlement costs in safer countries.

**Program Name: Lifeline Sponsorship Program
The Lifeline Sponsorship Program is a unique opportunity for donors to make a significant impact on the lives of individuals and families escaping danger in Afghanistan. By sponsoring a head-of-household, you’re not just providing financial support, you’re offering a lifeline to safety and a chance for a new beginning. Moreover, each family that is helped commits to working towards the rescue of another two at-risk families, creating a chain of hope and survival.
For (a) donation(s) of increments of $7000, a sponsor can cover the cost of a 2-year work visa, a flight out of Afghanistan, and two months of living expenses for a head-of-household. This donation can be the difference between life and death for these brave individuals.
