Kim Kardashian And Others Chartered A Plane To Assist Members Of An Afghanistan Women’s Soccer Team Who Fled The Country

This is how you do it! Kim Kardashian always uses her platform to make a difference. She recently used her influence to support Julius Jones, who was fighting to have his execution commuted by Oklahoma Governor Stitt. Julius is alive and is now serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole. However, this is not the only cause that Kim has invested her energy in. According to ESPN On Thursday, Kim, a rabbi from New York and Premier League team Leeds United, and others helped members of a young Afghan women’s development team return to safety after evacuating their country.

The departure of young women and their families because women play sports is seen as a political act of defiance against the Taliban. Reports said hundreds of female athletes had left Afghanistan since the group returned to power and began restricting women’s education and freedom. Along with her team, Kim chartered a plane that carried more than 30 teenagers and their families.

About 130 people landed safely in Britain at Stansted Airport near London. Players will spend ten days in COVID-19 quarantine before starting a new life in Britain. Khalida Popal, former captain of the Afghanistan Women’s National Team who led the evacuation efforts of the female athletes, spoke about the rescue with great enthusiasm as she felt so happy and relieved that the girls and their families were out of danger.

“Many of these families left their homes when the Taliban took power. Their homes were set on fire, ”Popal told The Associated Press. “Some members of their family have been killed or taken away by the Taliban. The danger and the stress were therefore very high, and that is why it was very important to act quickly to get them out of Afghanistan.

Kim shared a video online of the girls celebrating and thanked everyone involved in the efforts through several Instagram posts. Kim always goes above and beyond for those in need. We love to see it!
