Helping Afghans Who Helped Kiwis

$63,535 of $500,000 goal
Given by 440 generous donors in 8 weeks

It is not the Kiwi way to leave people behind; we need to bring them to safety.


To support the cost of relocating displaced NZDF Afghan Allies to New Zealand.

The Primary Goal is to get the eligible families out of crisis in Afghanistan. These families have been accepted, approved and issued Critical Purpose NZ VISAs.

We intend to assist 43 former NZDF Allies and their families in Afghanistan to obtain safe passage to New Zealand by whatever means the current security situation allows.

All information and updates for the plight of our Afghan Allies in Crisis will be posted on our Facebook Page.

The situation now is life or death, please dig deep for these families. Thank you.

Use of funds

Funds raised will be used for flights and relocation costs.

Any remaining funds will be allocated & distributed to the families to contribute towards resettlement costs in NZ.

Success & Gratitude - Safely back in NZ  24 November 2021

We have successfully assisted a number of families safe passage through to New Zealand. This is as a direct result of donations given to Helping Afghans who Helped Kiwis.

It is such a great relief for the families who have been able to leave. Thank You!

Some of the Men & Women who assisted our Defence Force can begin their new lives safely as Afghan Kiwi's living in NZ.

An ongoing effort is in place to sustain families who are left in Afghanistan.

This is an extremely difficult and challenging task. Donations made can also help in this capacity. To all the kind Kiwis out there who have donated and care for the Afghan people, Thank You!

Most of the families we represent are leaving Afghanistan with nothing but the clothes on their backs, therefore there is a need going forward for good condition household items, furniture, housing, accommodation, transport, vehicles, clothing, blankets, bedding sheets, food and of course money!!

If you are able to help in any way please do reach out.

Through the power of collective giving, we are changing the life path and future happiness & success of these individuals.

Wholeheartedly, Thank-You for contributing to this cause.

It's about doing what is right. Thank you for your hard work and dedication Ellen and Chris. We are very proud of you. Our son is in the Air Force and I've worked in developing countries so we 'get it'. And we feel for all those who serve our country who worked in Bamiyan and have now seen their work destroyed. Kia kaha.

Its important to always help those who can't help themselves. Thank you to those who set this up because the Afghans desperately need all the help they can get right now. And as Kiwis, I'm also glad we're helping those who helped NZ.
