Hardin Lang, Vice President for Policy and Programs at Refugees International, joins Dan Runde in this week's episode of Building the Future. Dan and Hardin discuss the ballooning refugee crisis and the latest updates on the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan. Their conversation spans the different countries that could take in Afghan refugees, the magnitude of the refugee crisis, and the actions that the U.S. and other countries should take to mitigate internally displaced Afghans.

For those concerned about the ongoing emergency, consider contributing to NGOs on the ground such as the International Rescue Committee, Mercy Corps, and others that are providing humanitarian relief in Afghanistan, as well as refugee resettlement agencies such as the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service working to help Afghan refugees navigating the legal application processes.
