Task Force Foxfire formed through a trial by fire. During the collapse of the Afghan National Government in 2021, our Executive Director was contacted by multiple personal friends seeking a way to help get various Afghan Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) applicants out of the country. Within the first 48 hours, utilizing his international network, the first family was on a plane bound for America. This started an avalanche of requests from concerned citizens, government employees, and Afghan nationals. In order to ensure operational security and effectively process the volume of applicants Mr. Muns recruited two of his local friends, who had prior experience in intelligence and humanitarian service, to run a 24/7 operation to facilitate as many evacuations as possible. By the time US forces withdrew on August 31st 2021, the team had grown to multiple foreign policy and affairs professionals, and over 100 referred individuals had been evacuated. This was the point where the humble organization, running out of a house in the Foxfire neighborhood of College Station, looked towards the horizon.
Our staff realized that our experiences, professional history, and passion for humanitarian service enabled us to reach far beyond a single conflict. Structurally formalizing the organization and gathering a fully operational team, allowed us to extend our assistance to any region of the globe where humanitarian crises were present. While the organization still actively pursues resolutions for the people of Afghanistan; we also conduct a number of services for organizations and entities within the humanitarian community. The team is now comprised of six core officers and a network of dozens of affiliated researchers, humanitarians, organizations, and corporate entities. The selection process for our board of directors has identified a panel of top-tier practitioners and academics, who are among the best that the world has to offer. With their leadership, TFF projects the ability to ensure our mandate is met, regardless of the challenges which are presented to us.
“To give protection to the weak. A voice to the forgotten. Comfort to the suffering. Promise of a future to those without hope. These things we pledge to those in need.”
