Returnees in Kabul need your support

15672958_10154813416482973_7444582683167192613_nAfghanistan Migrants Advice and Support Organization has been involved in providing orientation and support to hundreds of those who have been forcibly deported to Afghanistan over the past 4 years. Currently, a wave of deportation from various countries such as Norway, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands and other EU countries have put the lives of returned Afghans, including families and children in limbo.

Most of the young boys who have recently been deported have no family or network in Afghanistan. They have nowhere to live after they leave their temporary accommodation. Anyone deported from Europe is allowed to stay at a returnee receiving center for 14 days. After 14 days they have to live on their own. Some of the returnees risk returning to families, relatives and friends even in dangerous provinces. Most flee the country as soon as they can. For some, there is no way out and nowhere to live after they finish their time in the reception center.

AMASO is looking to start a safe house for those young boys who have nowhere to go until they are able to find a solution to their problem after return.

The support you give will be used:

. Safe house (will allow young returnees to stay in the house temporarily)

. Advice and orientation to returnees (connecting to support group, lawyer, other advice)

. Media campaigns and documentation
