Without the continued support of donors like you, none of this life-saving and life-changing work is possible. It is not hyperbole to say that money can transform lives, one family at a time.
Donations to Task Force Nyx are processed by our 501(c)3 fiscal sponsor, and are tax-deductible in the United States.

In recent months, Task Force Nyx has supported women directly upon release from prison, in transit to safety, and enduring unspeakable crises. Your gift supports safe lodging, food for families, medical care, and secure transport. Because of generous donors, we are often able to provide financial support within 24 hours; urgent assistance can be life-changing, even life-saving, for these courageous activists and their families. Afghanistan’s women’s rights protesters took to the streets to demand basic rights. Now, they need our support, as they travel to safety and await their new beginnings.

Every few weeks, we receive messages from LGBTQ+ Afghans; often, they approach us in the midst of a crisis and are in need of immediate assistance—for example, a safehouse following a physical attack, support for travel documents, or money for food and lodging after they have been kicked out of their family home. Help us boost our emergency protection grant fund, so that we are always able to meet these needs.

Task Force Nyx is presently supporting two families with children experiencing congenital—and severe—medical crises. These cases require an extraordinary amount of diligence, persistence… and fundraising! With your generous gift, we can help two little girls with Beta Thalassemia (and other families with medical needs) receive specialized medical care that will set their lives on a new course, and alleviate years’ of their parents’ suffering and fears about the future. Your donation will also support a young girl with Epidermolysis Bullosa (and accompanying co-morbidities) as she and her family relocate from Afghanistan to the United States.
Hi friends, Thank you for visiting our fundraising page. You may (or may not) be surprised…
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page. You may (or may not) be surprised to see that I will be running my first marathon, in Abu Dhabi, December 17th, alongside (or rather far behind!) Vasilis who will be running his 5th one and our friend Theo!
We decided to support a great cause that can have a life changing impact and each one of you can play a significant part no matter what your contribution might be.
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” – Aesop
Asra and Sadra Mansour are two little Afghan girls who both suffer from Beta Thalassemia Major, a severe genetic disorder requiring regular blood transfusions and specialized healthcare not available in Afghanistan. Their Father bravely supported the UK Mission in Afghanistan, saving the lives of his colleagues, surviving a suicide attack and being held hostage by the Taliban. Sadly, this family are not currently eligible for Afghan resettlement schemes.
Our friend Laura who has dedicated the last 6 years of her life working in the global refugee crisis is raising funds to support the girls’ private cost of medical care in the UK. Laura will pay for all of the family’s relocation costs to the UK and the Mansour’s will be living with Laura and her beautiful family while they apply for permanent status.
These girls can have a near normal expectancy and a substantially improved quality of life with access to medical care. Donations can be made here in USD (and are tax deductible for US donors). Please contact me for a UK charity for donations in GBP.
We know there are so many worthy causes deserving of support and that everyone’s financial circumstances differ.
Thank you so much for your consideration of these two beautiful little girls and for supporting our cause!
Eleni, Vasilis and Theo

“Zabi,” a bright, compassionate recent grad from Afghanistan, has endured more in his young lifetime than many of us can imagine. Against great odds, he survived a tumultuous childhood and put himself through university, receiving a degree in political science and law. Zabi first volunteered and then worked for an NGO supporting marginalized individuals in all areas of Afghanistan. After being threatened by the Taliban, he fled to safety in a neighboring country, and continued to volunteer to serve others—in this case, other refugees. Now, Zabi has a chance for a new beginning in Italy, where he looks forward to continuing his education, learning a new language, and finding meaningful work. Most importantly, he looks forward to feeling safe and free.
