Kim Kardashian West, New York rabbi and a U.K. soccer club collectively made this happen

Kim Kardashian helped Afghan women soccer team to fly out to Britain. The women soccer team left Afghanistan when the Taliban took over power in August. Women playing sports was seen as a power defiance towards the Taliban and so it was important for them and their families to evacuate. The members and family’s of Afghanistan’s women’s youth development soccer team arrived in Britain early Thursday after being flown from Pakistan. English Premier League club Leeds United has offered to support the players.

“Many of those families left their houses when the Taliban took over. Their houses were burnt down,” Popal told the Associated Press. “Some of their family members were killed or taken by Taliban. So the danger and the stress was very high, and that’s why it was very important to move fast to get them outside Afghanistan.”
