Concern Over the Suspension of the Evacuation Program for Endangered Afghans to Germany

Concern Over the Suspension of the Evacuation Program for Endangered Afghans to Germany

We would like to draw your attention to recent developments concerning proposed changes in immigration policies in Germany. These proposals, presented by the CDU and CSU coalition to the Bundestag, have raised significant concerns within ANGEN.

The Urgency of the Situation:

Now, as Afghanistan faces new challenges and threats, including the banning of girls’ education, the establishment of religious schools for children, control over the media, and changes to educational curricula, the need for continued efforts to promote democracy and socio-political freedom is more urgent than ever. Those who have risked their lives to champion these values require support and protection.

Our Call to Action:

ANGEN recognizes and appreciates the support and generosity of the German government and its people, who have played a significant role in assisting the Afghan population over the past two decades. However, we strongly believe that the acceptance of Afghans at risk should be carried out through a clear, legal mechanism that upholds international conventions related to human rights and refugee rights.

A Global Responsibility:

Furthermore, we stress the importance of viewing this issue as a global responsibility that transcends partisan divides. Addressing the root causes of the current crisis is essential for long-term stability and peace in Afghanistan.

The Plight of Afghan Refugees:

We would also like to highlight that tens of thousands of Afghans have been living in dire conditions in neighboring countries for months, with the hope of joining the proposed plan. Their situation underscores the urgency of this matter.


ANGEN is committed to working with all stakeholders to address these critical issues and find solutions that prioritize the safety, rights, and well-being of Afghans. We invite concerned individuals, organizations, and policymakers to join us in this endeavor.

Stay tuned for updates and further actions as we continue to advocate for a peaceful, democratic, and just future for all Afghans.
