Biennial Report FY21 - FY22

Support from the RefugeeOne community allowed us to rise to occasion despite challenging circumstances and events. We built a new headquarters and doubled our staff. Together, we adapted services due to COVID-19, welcomed hundreds of Afghans who were abruptly evacuated from Kabul, began serving Ukrainians fleeing the Russian invasion, and welcomed additional refugees from 62 other countries. We're grateful to every donor, volunteer, and community partner who played a part.
