The Unheard Voices of Refugees

Afghanistan Featured Image 6

THINK FOR A SECOND.

You have a place to call home. But despite that, you are desperately asking, begging and appealing to your neighbors to lend you some place. Some place to stay, some place to sleep. How exactly would you feel!

Now, according to the UNHCR, There are 2.6 million Afghan refugees registered worldwide, with 2.2 million of them in Iran and Pakistan alone. Another 3.5 million people have been internally displaced, fleeing their homes in search of a safe haven within the country. The number of persons escaping is projected to increase in 2021, given the increasingly deteriorating security situation & 20 years of Taliban-USA war. These refugees went to several countries including Pakistan, Iran, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Turkey, France, Germany, Austria, Poland, Switzerland, Canada, Kosovo, Uganda and many more. And that's exactly how they are feeling now!

Now let's talk about individual countries about THEIR VALUABLE CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE AFGHAN REFUGEES!


Pakistan and Iran have both stated that they are unable to handle any additional flood of Afghan refugees. Any refugees who arrive will have to stay in camps near the border until they can return to Afghanistan, according to the officials of both countries.

Then we have Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan has stated that it will assist in the movement of Afghans to third countries, but that it will only host refugees on a temporary basis.

Then, we have Turkmenistan. The country has declared that its airspace is available for evacuation flights, but it has not committed to taking in afghan migrants.

Along with that, we have Turkey. Now, Turkey's government has urged European countries to shoulder responsibility for any further migrant problem, claiming that Turkey will not serve as "Europe's migrant storage unit." To deter illicit entry, the country has accelerated construction of a border wall with Iran.

Furthermore, France, which evacuated around 2,800 people, largely Afghans, from Kabul airport, has said it will welcome SOME refugees but has not specified how many.

Other EU nations, such as Austria, Poland, and Switzerland, have stated that they would not take any additional Afghan refugees and are beefing up border security to prevent unlawful entry.

Now, according to a UN World Food Programme (WFP) study released on June, 14 million people, or more than a third of the population, are hungry in Afghanistan. WFP country director for Afghanistan, Mary-Ellen McGroarty, warned last week that unless emergency food and medical supplies arrived quickly, the "already horrifying situation" would turn into "an absolute catastrophe, a full humanitarian disaster."


But, as we have seen before, most of the countries having afghan refugees are showing no interest to take complete responsibility for them. Thus, the Afghan refugees have become homeless despite having a home.

Now here's a big Question that remains unanswered.

Who is truly responsible for the complete responsibility of 2.6 million afghan refugees spreading across more than 20 countries worldwide? Is it the United States of America? Or is it the Talibans? Or is it the individual countries having afghan refugees?

Well, the USA has not stated how many refugees it will accommodate, but it has sanctioned 500 US Dollars (£367 million) for "unexpected, urgent refugee and migratory needs of afghan refugees."

Now here's another Question, if we divide $500 million to nearly 3 million refugees, then each refugee should get nearly $170. But will this $170 truly be enough for their sacrifices & their sufferings? What does your conscience say?

    $170 will not be able to compensate for their sacrifice, not even $500 million!!! Suffering is not measured by money, no one knows what grief contains in those hearts except those who have experienced this sadness, and no one can compensate the refugee for losing his homeland, I know a man who is indeed an example of the greatest sacrifice,he was a soldier in the armies of an Arab country that before the death of its president was the most powerful country in the world, but after its occupation and the loss of hope of returning it,he was forced to abandon his shelter after being occupied, and when he returned to his original country, he found nothing but poverty and humiliation, thinking that the governments of his country would reward his struggle in the sister country,but they did not leave him a trick except to go to Jordan in the hope of reaching it by crossing Egypt, but they did not allow him to do so because he does not have an official passport, and here he is now in one of the graves under the dirt in the Arab cemeteries of Egypt,He died away from his family, his homeland and psychological comfort. Will $170 be rewarded for his struggle and suffering? No, of course not. Even if you pay him millions of dollars, you will not be able to make him forget this pain,It is not a simple pain that is marked by the renewal of the skin, but rather it is a wound that cannot be fused , and also, we do not forget the families whose psychological and physical health has been destroyed by the wars, because of which they are now called refugees

    Based on returnee monitoring findings, programs are being developed in close collaboration with development partners in order to ensure the sustainability of returns and mitigate protection risks. This includes: building community centers for women and youth; launching income-generating activities and linking them to markets; encouraging women's participation in decision-making through the Women's Shura Committee; Training youth and creating job opportunities for them, in partnership with the private sector.UNHCR leads the Protection Clusters (including co-lead of the Task Force on Land, Housing and Property) and Emergency Shelter and Non-Food Items (NFI) and provides essential relief supplies and emergency shelters to the most vulnerable. UNHCR is also distributing in-kind and cash assistance packages to prepare for winter.UNHCR is leading the response to the most vulnerable and displaced families from North Waziristan Agency in Pakistan, moving from providing emergency assistance to providing targeted assistance to people with specific needs and promoting self-reliance and resilience.UNHCR collects, verifies and analyzes information to gather evidence for advocacy efforts to obtain land and documents, among other things.

    UNHCR will continue to strengthen the link between the humanitarian and development spheres through partnerships with development actors and the private sector.

    Let's look at this from a mathematical point of view, according to the current exchange rate, 1 dollar is about 90 Afghan Afghani (Afghanistan currency). Now if a refugee was to have 170 dollars, he/she would have 15,300 AFN.
    According to numbeo.com a meal from an inexpensive restaurant in Afghanistan is 170 AFN, now if we were to find out how many meals a refugee could have we would simply divide 15,300 by 170, this would leave us with 90. This means that refugees can only have 90 meals, which will last at most 90 days (1 meal a day), it isn't even enough to carry him or her for a year. Now imagine if it is a family of refugees! This pitiful amount won't be able to allow them to thrive. Therefore, mathematically and honestly speaking, $170 is hardly enough to sustain ANYONE, and definitely not refugees!

      You are saying that according to what you calculated as 190 US dollars, it will be 15,300 (Afghan currency) and you will divide by 170, it will be 90 and each person will have one meal per day?!! Will you be enough for him?! Will he feed his refugee children with him, or will he eat? In my opinion, this is an injustice that we see with our own eyes and we do nothing, and this amount will not be enough to feed them. How will they buy clothes? How are they going to make a birthday for their children like the children of the world? I believe that every person has the right to live in his homeland without pressure from anyone and in safety, and no one has the right to pressure the citizens and expel them from their land, because no matter how long they stay in it, every citizen will return to his homeland.

    Well, I have a few suggestions.
    1. According to taxpolicycenter.org in 2019 the U.S government collected revenues up to 3.5 trillion dollars! Now the U.S government could put aside a decent amount for the refugees. If I was in charge, I would pull out 100 billion because I would be left with 3.4 trillion, and then every refugee would end up with a good, solid $33,000.
    2. My second recommendation is that the countries that have the refugees should step up and create more job opportunities, this will allow the refugees to actually make a living for themselves and their families.
    3. I would suggest a number of "hotels/motels" for the refugees so that while they are working or receiving their money, they have somewhere to stay until they can buy their own residencies.

    I don't think that 170$ is not enough for anyone from an ordinary citizen in any peaceful country . there is a quote that says "don't give me fish but teach me how to fish" so to solve the problem of these refugees we need to make them able to have their own needs and this is going to give them a chance to be better people. a useful one who is not a burden to anyone.

      But are they the ones who caused this destruction to themselves? Or were they victims?
      Of course they were victims, and governments should compensate them!!! And since job opportunities are not available in an appropriate proportion that suffices all refugees, so we wrong them by saying that they are able to meet their own needs,Because we do not have conditions that we can say that qualify them for a suitable job,Therefore, the governments that caused this war must compensate them. For example, there is a family that lost its father who will meet its needs. Will the child who has the right to education leave his school and his dreams and go for sale in the streets and beg for a bite?!!!I think that our saying that refugees have to meet their own needs encourages countries to colonize and destroy, that is, they will persist in their actions and persecute their rights, and that they should fend for themselves on their own...

      If we are not the ones who will appreciate their suffering, I think that this means that we have started to disperse and day after day we will begin to spoil what we have fixed, whether in the environment, in our peoples, in our beliefs, etc.......

    We should look at this as per a mathematical viewpoint, according to the current trading scale, 1 dollar is around 90 Afghan Afghani (Afghanistan cash).

    By and by if an untouchable was to have 170 dollars, he/she would have 15,300 AFN.According to numbeo.com a supper from an unassuming bistro in Afghanistan is 170 AFN, by and by on the off chance that we some way or another ended up finding the quantity of dinners an evacuee could have we would just partition 15,300 by 170, this would leave us with 90.

    This suggests that pariahs can simply have 90 suppers, which will persevere through everything thought about 90 days (1 dining experience a day), it isn't sufficiently even to pass on the individual being referred to for a year. By and by assume it is a gathering of outsiders.

    This miserable aggregate won't have the choice to allow them to thrive. In this way, mathematically and truly talking, $170 isn't actually enough to help ANYONE, and definitely not exiles.

    Close by that, we have Turkey. As of now, Turkey's organization has urged European countries to bear risk in regards to any further voyager issue, attesting that Turkey will not fill in as "Europe's transient storing unit." To thwart unlawful section, the country has accelerated advancement of a limit divider with Iran.

    Besides, France, which exhausted around 2,800 people, by and large Afghans, from Kabul air terminal, has said it will welcome SOME evacuees anyway not really settled the quantity of.

    As of now, according to an UN World Food Program (WFP) focus on followed through on June, 14 million people, or in overabundance of 33% of the general population, are energetic in Afghanistan. WFP country boss for Afghanistan, Mary-Ellen McGroarty, advised last week that with the exception of if emergency food and clinical supplies displayed up quickly, the "for the most part horrifying situation" would change into "a level out disaster, a full accommodating calamity."

    Nonetheless, as we have seen beforehand, most of the countries having afghan evacuees are showing no interest to accept absolute responsibility for them. Therefore, the Afghan outsiders have become down and out paying little mind to having a home.Thanks for your kind attention.

    The word 'Refugee' has bound us to think about it. At present different countries of the whole world are holding the lots of refugees fleeing from several countries of the world. They have a place to call home, but not the courage to go there risking their life.
    At present their are 2.6 million Afghan refugees spreading over 20 countries all over the world. Who are responsible for it? Aren't we? Couldn't we resist America when they intervened in the affairs of Afghanistan? couldn't we i,e all the countries all over the world force America to put its soldiers back to America after the death of Osama Bin Laden? Couldn't we stop the emergence of taliban when we were well aware of their extremism? Actually we could if we had tried so. But we never tried. We had let Afghans suffer without protecting them. And at present when taliban is in its Supreme power, when Afghanistan needs our help most, when they need external forces to get rid of the taliban, we are still holding our back and not helping them. At this hardest time the America is sending their soldiers back to the United States. Currently, not even a single country holding the Afghan refugees is agreed to take the responsibility of the refugees.

    Now, The taliban has taken over Afghanistan and as they are the main reason of the refugees being fled off, the taliban are accountable the further support of the refugees where their main responsibility is to take proper steps to bring the refugees back to Afghanistan. And as the America was always behind the huge fact, it's also responsible for ensuring the fulfillment of needs of the refugees of both inside and outside Afghanistan.

    But I think the question was quite tricky that "Who is responsible for the complete responsibility of the Afghan refugees?" let me make the question a little bit easier.

    WHO SHOULD COMPLETE THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE AFGHAN REFUGEES?

    If I am asked this question, my answer would be totally different from the previous one. The refugees have come to this stage because we, the every individual country did not help them when they required. And we are thinking about them after it has become a global problem.

    So, I think, at present not the United States or the taliban and even not the individual 20 countries holding the Afghan refugees should take the responsibilities of the refugees. Rather each and every country of the world should take the responsibility of them and help them in the best possible manner.

      This is a passionate comment. You suggest that all countries in the world should support refugees from Afghanistan and this is a fair suggestion. Here are a few questions to get you thinking harder.

      Should refugees get to chose where they stay? For example, they might have family or feel more cultural connection to some nations.

      Should countries who already support lots of refugees be included. For example, your country has the largest refugee camp in the world already.

      Should richer countries have more responsibility for supporting refugees?

        Tiff @ Topical Talk's comment 05 Nov 2021

        Here, let's think that somehow my house is totally damaged and now I have no place to live in. So I have chosen your house to live in. Can I live? Actually, It's up to you. If you permit me, only then I can chose your house to live in. The same applies to the refugees. They might have family or feel more cultural connection to some nations. In that case they can choose where they want to live and then seek permission accordingly to the respective authority of that country. But if the country they chosen is incapable of providing shelter to them and refuses to take the responsibility of the refugees, then the refugees can't live in that particular country. But they still got a chance to try for other countries, and if possible they can even try to return to their own country.

        There are many countries in the world who already support lots of refugees. Of course, my answer to your question is that these countries are also included. Maybe they cannot provide financial support. Or maybe they can do so if they are financially solvent enough. But it's not like that they can only help by giving money. Though money is the most important factor here, but still they can help the refugees by their words. They can inspire other countries to help them. If I talk about us, being the holder of the largest refugee camp in the world and a country of lower middle income, we cannot afford to help the refugees financially. But we can encourage our neighboring countries or the powerful countries we have friendly relation with like china to help the refugees. Again, even if it's not possible to help the refugees as a country whole, our wealthy and established individuals still got a chance to help the Afghan refugees after supporting our own refugees.

        Yes, it's obvious that richer countries are more responsible for helping the refugees. In my previous comment, I have mentioned that every country should help the refugees in the best possible manner. And if we compare between the rich and poor countries, obviously rich countries are more capable of helping the refugees than poor ones. The more rich a country is, the greater its responsibility. If a county itself is unable to fulfill the demands of its citizens, if the citizens of that country don't even get enough food to eat, how can we expect financial support to the refugees from that country? They still can simply motivate other countries to help the refugees without helping them financially. That's why, I think richer countries should have more responsibility for supporting the refugees.

    I think that it is an interesting discussion that Why aren't all the Refugees fleeing to the same country? I think they aren't because other wise the Taliban will know where everyone is going to. Secondly what would it feel like to have no where to call home because the Taliban have destroyed it? It would be devastating. The war of Afghanistan has happened been happening since 7th October 2001 - 30th August 2021. America has kept the government under control but left in April 2021, the Soviet Union gave the innocent Afghan people weapons to fight with against the Taliban. So, who has influenced Afghanistan's history the most?

    As a result of the Taliban taking over Afghanistan in August 2021, tens of thousands of Afghanistan fled, often taking desperate steps. Many other people who want to escape are still looking for a safe exit from the country. Countless Afghans are at risk of being targeted by past jobs and connections with the Allied Forces, the former Afghan government, international development programs, the media, civil society and other human rights groups. Women and girls and their families, especially those who are afraid of being unable to work or study, are also motivated to flee the country.
    The government should not ignore the plight of Afghans who are stuck between the borders of the two countries. Dozens of Afghans are stuck between Poland and Belarus, and the European Court of Human Rights has issued an injunction to provide humanitarian assistance to the group. Turkey does not recognize non-Europeans as refugees by law, but recognizes approximately 120,000 Afghans as "conditional refugees" with limited rights to move and residence and limited work opportunities. increase. An estimated 250,000 undocumented Afghans are believed to be in Turkey and are under threat of deportation. European and other governments need to allow asylum seekers in Afghanistan access to asylum procedures across national borders and not suspend them between countries.
    I think the government that has accepted Afghan asylum seekers should allocate enough resources to support the community-based groups that are accepting them. Programming for refugees should take into account the psychosocial (psychological) needs of newcomers, such as forced flight trauma and certain difficulties that may be encountered before and after leaving Afghanistan. The host country should start education within three months of the arrival of the refugee children and remove all obstacles to registration, including: Donor countries need to provide sufficient funding for emergency training. Unaccompanied minors should assist in reunion with their families.

    The Government of Pakistan firmly believes that it has provided adequate protection to refugees from Afghanistan through generous administrative measures for 40 years in Pakistan, but has disagreed with international refugee-related documents and is a refugee-specific citizen. The law provides adequate protection even in the absence of. However, administrative arrangements alone cannot solve the refugee problem. Taking into account all available options, the proper law at the national level for refugees is the order of the day. Pakistan also needs the international community for a permanent solution to Afghan refugees, as it cannot tackle this problem alone. Therefore, the international community should be aware of the facts and work to protect these refugees.

    Indeed, I am the only ear that can hear their cries and their pain and feel their sorrows because they remind us of the past and the present in which we live. I, as a Palestinian, felt and felt the suffering of the Afghan refugees from depriving them of the most basic rights. My right to live in my homeland in peace and security without fear or deprivation of the basics of life. The Afghans are suffering from the scourge of war twenty years in a war in which they have no control and at the end of it they live outside their country as refugees and do not enjoy their rights. Does what America collected in donations atone for the years of war and for how long will they remain so? Refugees are refugees who should obtain their rights in their homeland instead of being guests of neighboring countries and compensate for years of war with security and safety in their homeland. This is the responsibility of the whole world.

    Here, we should believe that in some way my home is completely harmed and presently I have no spot to reside in. So I have picked your home to reside in. Would i be able to live? In reality, It's dependent upon you. In the event that you grant me, no one but I can picked your home to reside in. The equivalent applies to the evacuees. They may have family or feel more social association with certain countries. All things considered they can pick where they need to reside and afterward look for consent likewise to the particular authority of that country. In any case, if the country they picked is unequipped for giving asylum to them and won't assume the liability of the displaced people, then, at that point, the evacuees can't live in that specific country. However, they actually got an opportunity to go after different nations, and if conceivable they can even attempt to get back to their own country.

    There are numerous nations on the planet who as of now support loads of evacuees. Obviously, my solution to your inquiry is that these nations are additionally included. Possibly they can't offer monetary help. Or on the other hand perhaps they can do as such in case they are monetarily dissolvable enough. Yet, dislike that they can just assistance by giving cash. However cash is the main component here, yet at the same time they can help the displaced people by their words. They can rouse different nations to help them. On the off chance that I talk about us, being the holder of the biggest outcast camp on the planet and a nation of lower center pay, we can't stand to help the evacuees monetarily. In any case, we can empower our adjoining nations or the incredible nations we have agreeable connection with like china to help the evacuees. Once more, regardless of whether it's unrealistic to help the displaced people as a nation entire, our affluent and set up people actually got an opportunity to help the Afghan evacuees in the wake of supporting our own exiles.

    Indeed, clearly more extravagant nations are more answerable for aiding the displaced people. In my past remark, I have referenced that each nation should help the exiles in the most ideal way. Also, if we think about between the rich and poor nations, clearly rich nations are more equipped for aiding the displaced people than poor ones. The more rich a nation is, the more prominent its obligation. On the off chance that a region itself can't satisfy the requests of its residents, if the residents of that nation don't get sufficient food to eat, how might we anticipate that financial support should the outcasts from that country? They actually can just persuade different nations to help the outcasts without aiding them monetarily. That is the reason, I think more extravagant nations ought to have greater obligation regarding supporting the exiles.

    We should check out this according to a numerical perspective, as indicated by the current swapping scale, 1 dollar is around 90 Afghan Afghani (Afghanistan cash). Presently if an exile was to have 170 dollars, he/she would have 15,300 AFN.

    As per numbeo.com a supper from an economical eatery in Afghanistan is 170 AFN, presently if we somehow managed to discover the number of dinners a displaced person could have we would basically isolate 15,300 by 170, this would leave us with 90. This implies that displaced people can just have 90 dinners, which will endure all things considered 90 days (1 supper daily), it isn't adequately even to convey the person in question for a year. Presently suppose it is a group of outcasts! This melancholy sum will not have the option to permit them to flourish.

    Subsequently, numerically and really talking, $170 is not really enough to support ANYONE, and certainly not evacuees!

    In this post you are talking about the unheard voices of refugees but I have some questions for you
    How do we make refugees' voices heard?
    What are the rights of refugees?
    What are the effects of the war on refugees?
    Are there organizations and institutions in Afghanistan that protect the rights of refugees?
    How do we protect the rights of refugees?

    Ideally, war shouldn't ever be a war but we are in the situation where conflict has happened and refugees are seeking a safer home. In this particular case, I think America should take most of the responsibility for the situation that has been caused. America armed the Afghan people when the Soviet Union was governing the country and encouraged the Afghan people to fight. Then, after 9/11, they declared war on Afghanistan. The reason why so many people want to leave the country is because they don't feel safe. Some of that is the fault of the Taliban but the number of deaths and injuries caused by American airstrikes has also played a part.

    $170 per refugee is nowhere near enough to start a new life in a strange country. Other countries have had a part in this war so I think other countries should contribute. Afterall, we are all human and deserve a safe place to live.Everyone should have a great life a war makes it worse.
