A family of 13 Afghans working for NATO have just arrived in Greece. Pending permanent resettlement, the family was temporarily housed by North Macedonia, which provides housing and access to education and health care, including aid to Afghan citizens during the holy month of Ramadan.
“Greece is pleased to welcome this family of 13 Afghan nationals working for NATO to its region. Following the events of last year, Greece is hosting about 800 people evacuated from Afghanistan, especially women, judges as well as civil servants and their families. This new resettlement testifies to Greece’s unwavering commitment to fulfilling its international obligations and applying great humanitarian principles and values, always fulfilling its obligations under international law. We thank all those who have helped us in our efforts, ”said the Greek Foreign Ministry.
About 2,000 Afghans working for NATO were evacuated from Kabul with their families in August 2021, in the largest evacuation mission in NATO history, through joint collaborative action. The Allies and NATO allies continued to work together to help the evacuated Afghans start a new life. In recent months, more than 470 former Afghan workers and their families have relocated to Canada, more than 150 to the United Kingdom, more than 130 to Germany, 80 to Norway and more than several hundred different coalition countries.
