Glenn Beck’s Audience Raises Over $20 Million In 2 Days To Rescue Christians From Afghanistan

Conservative radio host and political commentator Glenn Beck urged his listeners to “give until it hurts” to help finance the rescue of thousands of Christian women and children who are stranded in Afghanistan. He called upon his audience to come together and help support those who are still struggling to get out of Afghanistan, which had been plunged into Taliban control on Sunday.

“Every single penny that you can come up with will go to flying those planes and getting those people out,” the 57 year old Beck said on Wednesday, as reported by The Independent. “We need, obviously, an enormous amount of money. These are people that are marked for death for what they believe in.”

On Friday, Beck took to Twitter to share that he was “blown away” by what his audience was able to achieve: over $20 million was raised in less than three days for The Nazarene Fund, which will benefit religious minorities from Afghanistan.

Beck added, “Your generosity toward rescuing Christians in Afghanistan will be a Moses-style miracle. And it has given me back my hope for the future.”

I’m BLOWN AWAY by what this audience has done to help rescue persecuted Christians in Afghanistan! OVER $20 MILLION raised in less than 3 days! THANK YOU! https://t.co/yt6ZHp9dMk

The Nazarene Fund‘s mission is “to liberate the captive, to free the enslaved, and to rescue, rebuild and restore the lives of Christians and other persecuted religious and ethnic minorities wherever and whenever they are in need.” In 2017, it had reportedly relocated over 10,500 refugees from northern Iraq and Syria to other host countries such as the U.S., Canada, Australia, and more.
