As you might know, many Afghans fled the country when they heard the Taliban were returning to power. Refugees have left Afghanistan for several countries, including the United Kingdom (UK).
"Around 2.2 million left for neighbouring countries while 3.5 million people were forced to flee their homes within Afghanistan's borders.
The UK government agreed to allow up to 20,000 Afghan people to travel and start new lives in the UK over the next few years, with 5,000 Afghans able to travel this year."
There are also many British Afghans, many of whom have spent most of their lives in the UK but have relatives still in Afghanistan.
