An Opening Provided in the Midst of Chaos – Update on the Afghan boys

In our previous blog, we wrote about how the arrival of the Afghan boys were delayed with no new arrival date by the crashing of the U.S. visa database. Well, we have an update with a happy ending.

After much anticipation and due diligence from Project Life’s family and friends, in the wake of an unexpected grand system crash, an opening was provided for the three travel weary young Afghan boys, who arrived safely in the U.S on August 5th. They were welcomed into the United States by some of our staff, volunteers and WIVB News 4 of Buffalo, NY.
