Relief International (RI) is a leading nonprofit organization working in 16 countries to relieve poverty, ensure well-being and advance dignity. We specialize in fragile settings, responding to natural disasters, humanitarian crises and chronic poverty.
Relief International combines humanitarian and development approaches to provide immediate services while laying the groundwork for long-term impact. Our signature approach — which we call the RI Way—emphasizes local participation, an integration of services, strategic partnerships and a focus on civic skills. In this way, we empower communities to find, design and implement the solutions that work best for them.
RI includes the four corporate members of the RI Alliance: RI-US, RI-UK, MRCA/RI-France and RI-Europe. Under our alliance agreement, we operate as a single, shared management structure.
The US government has set up a special immigration program called “US Refugee Admissions Program Priority2” which enables Afghan nationals to apply for a US visa if they have worked for an International NGO that is or was in receipt of USAID funding for their programs in Afghanistan. Relief International is supporting current and former staff in Afghanistan to submit an application through the P2 program. Requests for support are being directed to the RI office in Afghanistan, where the Human Resources team will receive completed referral packages. Once checked, these applications will be forwarded to the HR team at RI’s head office in the US, where they will be checked and verified, before they are submitted to the US government for consideration.
