Description

ABOUT NO ONE LEFT BEHIND

No One Left Behind (NOLB) was established in 2014 when former Afghan interpreter and Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) recipient Janis Shinwari took $35,000 raised for him through a GoFundMe campaign and founded an organization to help others like him. Janis saved five American soldiers as an interpreter in combat yet waited years for his SIV application to be approved. 

Today, NOLB is the only national organization solely dedicated to assisting SIVs. NOLB directors, advisors, staff, and volunteers work tirelessly to ensure the United States meets its moral obligation to protect those who risked their lives in support of it abroad.
