1450 Afghan Children Evacuated by US Army without Parents

Kabul – At least 1,450 Afghan children have been evacuated to the United States without their parents, and some may never be reunited with their families, the US media have reported.

At least 1,450 Afghan children have been evacuated to the US without their parents in the early days of the evacuation process, CNN reported on (Monday, December 27th).

Many of these children remember their families while sleeping, the media added.

According to CNN, these children were transferred to the US in August.

It is said that many of these children may not be able to reunite with their families.

This statistic, obtained in a recent CNN research from the Asylum Office, contains a destructive message about the evacuation process and its consequences.

“It is shocking that more than a thousand Afghan children are homeless in the US,” said Dr.Sabrina Parino, an Afghan-American pediatrician in California.

These children are potentially feeling lonely and afraid and are waiting for foster parents, she added.

In the meantime, many child rights activists in the US say many children tried to flee Afghanistan with their families but were separated in the chaos, and others lost contact with their parents during the Kabul airport bombing.

According to US officials, a bunch of these children has been reunited with their families in a quick program by the Biden government.

About 250 of these children are still under government administration, some are in foster care, and most of these children have no family members to live with in the US, according to statistics provided by the Asylum Seekers Office.

Meanwhile, since the fall of the regime and the influx of people into Kabul airport, hundreds of orphans have been flown to the United States on military planes.
