News from Kabul Luftbrücke

Here you will find the latest news about the work of Kabul Luftbrücke and our efforts to create a federal reception programme. For security reasons, we cannot report on the evacuation measures until they have been completed.

  • On August 12th we want to invite you to spend the afternoon and evening with us at about blank! We would like to use this time together to network, get to know you and say thank you to our growing community of allies, supporters and evacuees.

  • "MISSION Kabul Luftbrücke" documents how former local forces manage to leave the country, how children hope to be reunited who were separated from their parents while fleeing, and how young women decide to no longer bow to the Taliban's rules.

  • "For many people, losing their home is unthinkable. However, it is a reality for many people. To make the reality of these people's lives more tangible, Alex Bühler spoke to the Taiman family for us."

  • "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!"

  • 2-year-old Afat was our 1000th evacuee on 6 December 2021. She, her family and other Afghans were able to leave Kabul by land. We are very happy for the evacuees and continue to work without interruption to enable as many people in need of protection as possible to leave.

  • This morning we evacuated 148 people from Afghanistan on a donor-funded charter flight, including two of the Afghan air traffic controllers who had previously worked for the Bundeswehr.

  • We continue to evacuate people: In recent weeks, we have been able to expand different ways of evacuating people by air and land, and your donations have already helped 423 people to flee.

  • Participants: Theresa Breuer, Mattea Weihe, Ruben Neugebauer
