CALL TO ACTION: Afghan-American Austinite Veteran Seeks Assistance for Family Members


We have an opportunity to help someone in need right now.

Here in Austin, there’s an Afghan interpreter named Hash who served alongside our military. He has become a citizen, but his family is currently trapped in Kabul, at Hamid Karzai International Airport. They have been told they will leave in 2 days, but they have no food or water. His 3-year-old child is now beginning to fade in and out of consciousness.

A veteran, and Hash’s sponsor, have reached out to SARC, asking if we can share Hash’s story.

We’ve all seen the images coming out of this emergency, and here is a small but important way we can help someone who risked his life for our soldiers.

He has asked that people contact Austin media to bring attention to this emergency and to see if his family can receive basic supplies.

So South Austin Republicans, we’re asking you to reach out and share this link with the following media outlets:
