Hussain's Story

A Life of Duty

Hussain Kazimi came to the United States in 2014 on a Special Immigrant Visa after serving the U.S. mission in Afghanistan as a translator. During his 10 years of service, he faced unimaginable danger, but he was able to make it out and start a new life in the United States.

Thousands of Afghan allies like Hussain remain in danger. Join us in advocating for their safety.
