Press release: Federal admission program forces endangered persons to stay in Afghanistan

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.

One year after our first flight

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.

One year after the regime change in Afghanistan

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.

Ein Jahr nach dem Fall von Kabul – Noch immer keine Anlaufstelle für gefährdete Afghanen bei der Bundesregierung!

„Auch ein Jahr nach der Machtübernahme der Taliban hat die Bundesregierung keine Anlaufstelle für gefährdete Personen aufgebaut. Eine solche Stelle ist noch nicht einmal geplant. Zudem wurde versäumt, entsprechende Personalkapazitäten zu schaffen, um ein Bundesaufnahmeprogramm sinnvoll umzusetzen,” sagt Tareq Alaows von Kabul Luftbrücke.

Ten-point plan: Germany must stand by its responsibility and rescue persecuted people

"We must not forget the people who have stood up for a liberal Afghanistan every day. All those who do not conform to the Taliban's world view must fear for their lives. They must be saved, regardless of whether they have a direct connection to Germany or not!"
