During World War II, military personnel and civilians joined efforts to evacuate soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk. This mission was called Operation Dynamo, and it saved many lives during one of the darkest chapters of the world’s history.
Today, Project Dynamo II is following suit by saving as many Americans and Afghan allies as possible. Afghanistan is a country of 34 million people. Tens of thousands of them stepped up to help American soldiers when they arrived in the country 20 years ago, serving as translators, guides, and friends.
Now that U.S. troops and NATO are leaving their country, they are gripped by panic, terror, and anxiety over what they will face left to their own devices against the Taliban.
The Project Dynamo efforts have already saved many lives by gathering evacuees in four provinces outside of Kabul and flying them to safety. But the sense of urgency is great, since the Taliban is cutting off all internet and cell phone communications with the outside world on August 31st. After that point, it will be nearly impossible to locate individuals. We need your help now.
