So far it's estimated that over 10,000 people have been evacuated by the UK from Afghanistan since troops began overseeing the operation to get as many men, women and children who are able to leave the country.
More than 5,500 of those flown from Kabul are Afghans and their families.
The Taliban have now recaptured Afghanistan - and this has resulted in thousands heading to the capital Kabul's airport in a bid to flee the country before Western forces complete their withdrawal - which could be as early as the 31st of August.
It's believed there are over half a million refugees now in Afghanistan.
North East and North Yorkshire councils have vowed to provide a "safer future" for refugees fleeing the crisis.
Charities and support groups in our region are doing what they can to support those in need, many of whom left without any belongings.
