Britain is currently playing an important role in securing Afghan people. As they committed, they are welcoming more than 20,000 people in the upcoming years. 5,000 in the first year as part of their Afghan citizens’ resettlement scheme (ACRS).

Regarding 20,000 people government spokesperson said, “The government is committed to doing all it can to support those most in need, including vulnerable women and girls, and those at risk who have had to flee Afghanistan.”

In this humanitarian work, Portugal also welcomed Afghan musicians who fled from Afghanistan due to a crackdown of fear.

Pakistan has granted 30 days temporary visa to the squad, which led them to flee to Lahore from there they will relocate to Britain.

There’s more to come because at one point male sport athletes will leave Afghanistan. After all, the way the Taliban are running the country won’t progress. That’s the reason talented young people are trying their best to get out of that mess.
