The Afghan Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) program was created to protect Afghan allies who risked their lives helping U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Despite its promise, the program has been plagued by backlogs since it launched in 2009, leaving tens of thousands of Afghans in dire need of support.The Save our Allies Coalition membersA  know that the more than 800,000 brave men and women who served in Afghanistan can attribute a great deal of their success to the valuable addition the Afghan allies took to help protect and defend their country. Because of this critical assistance that was shown to our service members when they were deployed, we owe it to them to assist in their time of need."Our work and mission continue to honor our Allies as we move into Phase 2 of our operation,"A said Sarah Verardo, CEO of The Independence Fund.A "It is our job to honor our fallen service members, continue to serve our nation's heroes, and complete the Save Our Allies mission to resettle the Allies we were able to evacuate with the respect and warm welcome they deserve. For so many of us, Afghanistan will be on our hearts and minds for all of our days."
