welcomed our first Afghan evacuee clients at Logan Airport in Boston. Abdulmuqsad Waziri, his wife Robina, and their four small children were greeted by IINE staff and accompanied to a secured and furnished apartment in Cambridge, which was made available thanks to the generosity of a local landlord and IINE partner, who offered it at a discounted rate.

IINE expects to resettle at least 425 Afghan evacuees in Lowell, Greater Boston, and Manchester, NH over the next 12 months.[/fusion_text][fusion_gallery layout=”” picture_size=”” columns=”” column_spacing=”” gallery_masonry_grid_ratio=”” gallery_masonry_width_double=”” s2id_autogen16=”” s2id_autogen16_search=”” hover_type=”” lightbox=”yes” s2id_autogen17=”” s2id_autogen17_search=”” lightbox_content=”” bordersize=”” bordercolor=”” border_radius=”” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=”” s2id_autogen18=”” s2id_autogen18_search=”” caption_style=”off” caption_title_color=”” caption_title_size=”” caption_title_tag=”2″ fusion_font_family_caption_title_font=”” fusion_font_variant_caption_title_font=”” caption_title_transform=”” caption_text_color=”” caption_background_color=”” caption_text_size=”” fusion_font_family_caption_text_font=”” fusion_font_variant_caption_text_font=”” caption_text_transform=”” caption_border_color=”” caption_overlay_color=”” caption_align_medium=”none” caption_align_small=”none” caption_align=”none” caption_margin_top=”” caption_margin_right=”” caption_margin_bottom=”” caption_margin_left=””][fusion_gallery_image image=”https://iine.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/boys-smile-300×200.jpg” image_id=”17094|medium” image_title=”” image_caption=”” link=”” linktarget=”_self” /][fusion_gallery_image image=”https://iine.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/dad-300×200.jpg” image_id=”17095|medium” image_title=”” image_caption=”” link=”” linktarget=”_self” /][fusion_gallery_image image=”https://iine.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/MEDIA-ADVISORY-whole-family-300×200.jpg” image_id=”17096|medium” image_title=”” image_caption=”” link=”” linktarget=”_self” /][fusion_gallery_image image=”https://iine.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/robina-and-baby-300×200.jpg” image_id=”17097|medium” image_title=”” image_caption=”” link=”” linktarget=”_self” /][fusion_gallery_image image=”https://iine.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/two-children-200×300.jpg” image_id=”17098|medium” image_title=”” image_caption=”” link=”” linktarget=”_self” /][/fusion_gallery][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
