More than 30 players and their families landed at Stansted in London on Thursday.

They have all been granted visas in the UK.

Many female athletes fled Afghanistan when the Taliban regained power in the country earlier this fall.

A national football team players have been evacuated to Australia and the youth national team has been received by Portugal.

The players of the development national team received help from the aid organization Tzedek, which, among other things, helped Jews to leave Afghanistan.

Rabbi Moshe Margaretten, who started the organization, turned to the American television personality and influencer Kim Kardashian West for financial assistance with the flight.

- An hour later I received a text message that Kim wanted to pay for the whole trip, says Margaretten.

The Premier League club Leeds have offered to help the players on site in the UK.
