Afghan refugees begging to send them home

Thousands who fled Taliban are living in hotels with inadequate healthcare in Operation Warm Welcome.

Operation Warm Welcome, the government’s Afghan resettlement programme, was launched by Boris Johnson on 29 August to help Afghan refugees arriving in the UK by providing support so they could “rebuild their lives, find work, pursue education and integrate into their local communities”.

Afghans arrivals were placed in hotels there with “inadequate” medical provision. There are also concerns over healthcare for those held in hotels following the evacuation from Kabul airport, with one charity describing confusion over access to local GPs.
