Support for Afghan Refugees

In 2021, the crisis in Afghanistan brought large numbers of displaced and vulnerable people to Washington State, SYL Foundation stepped up to support the efforts of local organizations working to assist the new arrivals. Thanks to the generosity of the True Buddha School community, we were able to make grants of $20,000 to MAPS-MCRC and $15,000 to Afghan Health Initiative.  Both organizations have worked tirelessly to provide Afghan refugees with case-management, basic needs assistance, and other critical supports.
