Afghan Families Community Iftar & Dinner

Afghan Families Community Iftar – April 23, 2021

Afghan Home USA in partnership with ICNA Relief organized a community Iftar event celebrating the breaking of fast with the recently settled Afghan families in the DMV area. The event was held a community center in Alexandria, VA with a capacity of about 400 people. The event was free but by reservations only with priorities given to the newly settled Afghan families. The event was a success and was sold out within the first 24-hours of opening the RSVP. Many thanks to the organizers and to the volunteers making this event enjoyable for all.

Afghan Home USA was honored to have Mr. Haris Tarin, Chief of Staff for the Operation Allies Welcome, attend and give a rousing speech about the importance of being involved in the community and that “we have the responsibility for ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren to make sure that we empower and build our community”.

Afghan Home USA is dedicated to empowering the Afghan community and we have more such events planned for throughout the year and welcome your participation.

Nowruz Celebration Event

Nowruz Celebration – March 19, 2021

Afghan Home USA in collaboration with ICNA Relief and AYRF, our community partners, organized a fun-filled event on March 19, 2022, celebrating the traditional Afghan New Year of Nowruz. Nowruz which means New Day marks the beginning of spring and is celebrated in Afghanistan and its neighboring countries as the start of the new calendar year. This celebration, which was held at Fort Hunt Park in Alexandria, Virginia was attended by a large gathering of Afghans including many of the recently settled families.

Food and live music was provided, and the attendees enjoyed traditional Afghan dances and songs. Families in need received care packages, and gifts were provided to the children.

A perfect spring day provided a pleasant atmosphere to celebrate the new year and the new beginning for many of our compatriots who have recently settled here and call this area home. Afghan Home USA has more such events planned for throughout the year and welcomes your participation.
