Operation Lifeline: The Urgent 30-Day Mission to Save Lives in Afghanistan
The resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan has put countless lives at risk, including human rights activists Zarif and Farid. These brave individuals not only stand for justice and equality but also represent 38 pre-screened families who are in immediate danger. “Redeem the Oppressed,” an organization committed to saving lives, is on a critical 30-day mission to rescue these individuals and their families. This article aims to shed light on their plight and how you can help.
Meet the Activists: Zarif and Farid
Zarif: A Beacon in Kabul
Zarif has been a voice for the oppressed for over a decade. His life is now in grave danger due to his activism against the Taliban regime. Zarif represents a group of families who have been pre-screened and are known to be in immediate danger.
Farid: A Decade of Dedication and a Key Role in Governance
Farid has spent the past decade advocating for human rights, women’s empowerment, and social justice. He also served as a senior protocol officer for the former President of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani. Farid has been living in hiding for over two years, constantly changing his location to escape the Taliban’s grasp. He leads a group of families, each with a member targeted by the Taliban for their pro-West affiliations and activism.
The Urgent 30-Day Mission
Both Zarif and Farid are currently being extracted to another country on a 30-day visa to apply for asylum. The urgency to raise adequate funds to support them during this period is critical. If their asylum applications fail, the funds will be used to fly them to a third location that offers visa-upon-arrival.
The Future: Grassroots Movement for Reform
Once Farid and Zarif find stability, they plan to lead a grassroots movement for reform in Afghanistan. Their leadership will be instrumental in the rescue of the remaining families and others in dire need.
