Catholic Charities of Eastern Oklahoma is preparing to possibly host families from Afghanistan in Tulsa. The organization filled out a capacity survey letting the state department know they were prepared to provide a place to live for 50 to Afghan families.
Tens of thousands of people are desperately trying to get out as the Taliban gains even more control. Many fear for their lives and are looking to find a safe place to go. Some area veterans said they're so relieved some of the people they worked with every day will finally be free. Retired U. Pasque said the situation now is much different than when he left last year. The UN Refugee Agency said violence has displaced nearly three and a half million Afghans in the past year. Deacon Kevin Sartorius said some families could arrive in less than 30 days and others could come in the next three to six months.
Deacon Sartorius said they'll provide each family with a furnished apartment and food to eat. They'll also help get kids enrolled in school, and help families find jobs. Pasque said he still keeps in touch with one of the interpreters he worked with while overseas. He said he hopes to one day bring him to Tulsa. Pasque said he hopes Tulsans will welcome families with open arms because they've sacrificed a lot to get here. The capacity survey was due on Wednesday and Deacon Kevin Sartorius said they should know more next week. Catholic Charities said they'll likely need donations to furnish apartments in the coming weeks once they have the details worked out.
