Beginning on August 12, 2021, Veterans began working together to arrange transportation for a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holder who served as an interpreter with U.S. Forces in Afghanistan. As the crisis evacuation operations in Afghanistan unfolded, the necessity to assist and sustain individuals who have directly supported the U.S. and NATO Forces, as well as those who have been targeted and displaced, became evermore apparent. Thanks to our volunteers' coordinated efforts during the early days of the Afghanistan crisis, people were saved and crucial, lasting alliances with external humanitarian groups were established.
Service is in our DNA and our goal is to continue to make a positive impact at the community level by delivering humanitarian assistance, wherever it may be in the world. The Lifeline Foundation has grown to include volunteers from the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia and is expanding initiatives across several countries.
Your Support Will Provide:
Skill-based education and retraining.
Transportation such as busing or flights to safe areas.

Supporting Communities Globally
We seek to match our veterans and other supportive volunteers to communities around the world where their expertise will provide the greatest tangible impact. There are typically both local and international opportunities, but mission-driven initiatives change depending on community needs .
