How a former U.S. military translator escaped Afghanistan with his family and started over in Texas

“I’m happy that I’m helping those new Afghan refugees that are struggling because there’s all the new people that came here with no nothing, no clothing,” Lucky said. “They left everything in Afghanistan, so I’m trying to help them with what I can do.”

Lucky took his family back to Afghanistan when his mother was hospitalized with kidney problems. Then the Taliban took over the country, and the family joined thousands of Afghans desperately trying to escape.

On Saturday, February 26, 2022, from 11:30am to 1:30pm, charitable animal lovers are taking off to go “around the world" with Animeals for the 9th Annual Wags & Whiskers Brunch.

Operation Allies Welcome wraps up in Fort Bliss as thousands of Afghans resettle in Texas

“I am incredibly proud of the military men and women of Task Force Bliss and the entire interagency team who enabled the resettlement of approximately 11,400 Afghan evacuees,” Air Force Gen. Glen D. VanHerck, commander of U.S. Northern Command, said in a statement.

More than 3,200 Afghans have been resettled in the Houston area since evacuation efforts began — making up almost half of the total 6,800 Afghans finding new homes in Texas, according to state refugee coordinator Jeff Demers.

What does it take to run aMOW every month? 10,000+ pounds of kibble…. Every. 4. Weeks. Seriously. Whoa!

What did we wish for, for holiday season 2021? A well-stocked, clean, and organized aniMeals on Wheels Room! So…. We rolled up our sleeves and CREATED one! 😊

BIG thanks and kudos to our volunteer team: Nadia, Sammy, & Sarah, Tysen & Dre (pictured), and Anila & Annika! Three families, all with their tweens and teens along to help, worked with us get our area ready for 2022! Notice the formation of the bagged kibble, into little “snowmen” of bags. That idea was Tysen’s (age 11), to minimize the bags slipping, falling, and tearing, as bags are retrieved from this area and the remaining inventory settles. Great thinkin’, Tysen! ❤

MEGA thanks to Alexis Haynes, aniMeals on Wheels Volunteer Coordinator, for continuing to improve and strengthen our aniMeals on Wheels Program, in every way.

Peace, love, and full bellies, for our four-legged friends!

Thanks to the Law Offices of Dakshini R. Sen, one of our Sudanese client families had a very joyful Christmas. The items donated by the law office were delivered to Malak and her two children. Malak and her family were completely overjoyed by the gift items, as well as the generosity and kindness of people in the community.

Malak’s son, pictured with her, was very excited about the backpack full of school supplies, especially the crayons! He has needed those. Her daughter was also very excited about her backpack. And the whole family starting clapping and laughing when the TV and other housewares were brought into the house.

Thank you to the Law Offices of Dakshini R. Sen for bringing this family a great deal of joy with your thoughtfulness and generosity during this holiday season.

Gloria enrolled in Meals on Wheels in Fall 2021. Soon after, she reached out to our staff, expressing her desire to adopt a dog and asking for some assistance, in doing so.

The staff conferred with our aniMeals on Wheels team to see if they had any connections to organizations that might be able to help Gloria adopt a dog. Our partners at the Houston Humane Society jumped to action, generously waiving the adoption fees, getting the perfect pup seen by their wonderful veterinarians, for a quick check-up, and then bringing him to Gloria. The 5 year old Yorkie/Shih Tzu mix, named Ace, was instantly at home!

It has been wonderful to see these two become best friends! The aniMeals on Wheels Program helps seniors, like Gloria, keep their beloved animal companions happy, healthy, and at home, where they want to be! ❤️🐾❤️

Pardon the interruption, but, trust us.... you're going to want to paws (😉) and look at DIS FACE!

This is Gizmo. He’s only about a year old and is the epitome of why aniMeals on Wheels does what we do. As you can see, he’s a bit skinny, so we’re sending him some food. He also hasn’t been seen by a vet since he was a new puppy, so….. we’re gonna get that done for him, too. His mom is new to pet parenting, so we’re helping teach her the ropes of microchipping, kibble shopping, avoiding feeding him table scraps, etc. She is eager to learn. 😊

So, for your weekend dose of love, from the pets of aniMeals….. say hi to sweet Gizmo! ❤ 🐾😍

Our Story

Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston brings people of diverse faith traditions together for dialogue, collaboration and service, as a demonstration of our shared beliefs. Our core programs are: • Meals on Wheels delivers more than one million meals and more each year to 4,000+ homebound seniors in Harris, Galveston and surrounding counties. In addition, aniMeals on Wheels provides free pet food to over 1,200 dogs and cats of homebound seniors - as well as spay/neuter services, flea and tick prevention, and more! • Refugee Services, in conjunction with the U.S. State Department and Episcopal Migration Ministries, resettles hundreds of legal refugees in Houston each year. 90% of our refugees are self-sufficient within six months of arrival. • Interfaith Relations and Community Partnerships (IRCP) provides a safe harbor for greater Houston through its many interfaith programs and dialogue efforts. In fall 2017, Volunteer Houston became part of the IRCP family, matching volunteers with nonprofits across the community.
