Urgent pleas from charitable organisations regarding the welfare of Afghan refugees’ families
Charities and activists are strongly urging UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to honour the promises made to Afghan refugees to allow their families to resettle in the United Kingdom.
It is said that more than 100 activist and charitable organisations have called upon the PM to accommodate the resettlement of Afghan refugee families within the United Kingdom as soon as possible.
The pleas come after thousands of Afghan refugees were allowed into the UK, however, their families had to remain. Since then, the UK government pledged to reunite those refugees with their families and settle within the confines of Great Britain.
Multiple Afghan refugees are waiting for their families to arrive in the United Kingdom
It has been 12 months since the UK Government Made its first pledged to resettle Afghan family members after the refugees arrived in the UK. Despite the pledge, no formal action plan has been implemented to make it happen.
In recent campaigns, many campaigners have raised their concerns that the government has abandoned its initial plan of resettlement, subsequently, leaving many Afghan nationals in grave danger.
Approximately 6,300 citizens of Afghanistan had to leave their family members behind to seek safety in the United Kingdom.
Beth Gardiner-Smith, the chief executive of Safe Passage International, has said:
“It’s been 18 months since families were torn apart when Kabul fell. The government has effectively abandoned Afghans, leaving them without a process to reunite with loved ones who are at risk despite repeated promises made.
“Afghans remain one of the top nationalities risking their lives to cross the Channel, but rather than create the safe routes that would allow them to reunite with family, the prime minister prefers to concentrate on new laws to further punish refugees.”
