The refugees fleeing the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan were flown to Tirana airport from August 27 until November 2021. Albania was one of the first countries that agreed to offer temporarily shelter to around 4,000 + Afghan refugees until their applications to go to the US are complete. 2500 of them made it to Albania and others are continuing to come every week.

The Albanian authorities have prepared several sites in Shengjin, and Durres both our broadcast areas and cities we have active counseling ministry. Media 7 is supporting the Afghan refugees distributing clothes, shoes, toys for children, baby strollers, kettles, hygiene packages, diapers and supporting medical and dental needs. We are thankful to our partner organizations that gave generously and are enabling us to show hospitality to the Afghan refugees in this time of great need.

Their stories are heartbreaking and they have many family members still in Afghanistan. Please keep them in prayer and pray for our team working on the ground.
