Who we are

We are a civilian initiative that is aware of and accepts its responsibility towards the Afghan people. With the help of your donations and our efforts, we have already succeeded in evacuating over 2,700 people and supporting thousands more in their evacuation. But we are far from finished and we will continue!

Updates

  • In today's press release from the BMI and AA, the ministries announced the start of the humanitarian admission program for Afghanistan, which vulnerable individuals and their families have been waiting for for over a year. Access to the program will be limited by only being able to apply through selected NGOs, which will be overloaded with the task. Once again, it is civil society that is expected to bear the government's protracted assumption of responsibility. Kabul Luftbrücke criticizes severely limited access to the program.

  • Our first evacuation mission started a year ago. With the help of a chartered Airbus A320, we wanted to fly 170 threatened Afghans out on the night of 28-29 August 2021. Our plane took off with only 18 people. Our first evacuation had failed in large parts. But we kept going. Our first flight was not to be our last. On 13 November, our second charter flight took off and 148 people who had been persecuted by the Taliban were evacuated. Even though our name stands for evacuations by air, we evacuated most people by land, often by bus to Pakistan. And we are not stopping. Since our first flight in August 2021, we have helped 2713 people leave Afghanistan safely and legally.

  • Mohammad G was a prosecutor in Afghanistan, tackling gangsters and warlords. He had worked his way up as a member of the ostracised Hazara ethnic group, like all his siblings. An associate of the hated judiciary and a Hazara - this made him a doubly worthwhile target for the Taliban. When armed men slashed his mother's face after the Taliban victory, it was clear that the family would not only have to go underground. It was clear that they all had to leave the country and find a new, safe home. Without the Taliban. You can read about how the Kabul Airlift helped them at the Bosch Foundation.
