"My family escaped Afghanistan"
As the Taliban continues to wreak havoc and destruction in Kabul, we’ve seen shocking images of people desperately fleeing the country and fighting for their lives. Farid Ahmad Rahmani is an Afghan citizen who managed to escape the war-torn country with his wife and six children. During their terrifying three day journey, they witnessed people being crushed in stampedes and even feared their two-year-old daughter may not survive after she lost consciousness. Thankfully Farid and his family have now arrived in the UK safely. He joins us to tell us his remarkable story of escape from his homeland and why he’s hugely grateful to British officials.
