According to a report, Afghani civilians from all walks of life were safely and secretly evacuated from the country to be resettled in other countries for the foreseeable future; Harman: It behooves us all to listen to and respect anyone’s cry for help, and, moreover, if we can reach out our hands to assist.
During the recent turmoil surrounding the US withdrawal from Afghanistan amid the Taliban takeover of the country, a significant amount of concern surfaced for the future of the Afghani people and the country itself. While many have been left without answers as to how to be of assistance, the Jewish State reportedly took the initiative to remove a number of Afghans from the war-torn country.
As reported by The Jerusalem Post, IsraAID, an Israeli humanitarian aid organization, has safely and successfully coordinated the evacuation of 167 Afghans between September and October. The evacuees include people from all walks of life, including athletes, judges, scientists, law enforcement, and much more. According to the report, the evacuees temporarily arrived in Albania and will eventually resettle long term in Canada and Europe.
CEO of IsraAID, Yotam Polizer, told reporters that “after an intense and difficult process over the past several weeks, with the situation constantly changing and new plans being built on an almost daily basis, we are delighted to be able to say that our main focus right now is on ensuring the evacuees have everything they need while they begin the process of building lives for themselves.”
Journalist, Danna Harman, who teamed up with the organization, stated, “It behooves us all to listen to and respect anyone’s cry for help, and, moreover, if we can reach out our hands to assist.”
Furthermore, IsraAID plans to support the individuals moving forward.
