Out of Afghanistan: Life in the UK (episode 2)

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Out of Afghanistan: Life in the UK (episode 2)” – below is their description.

From quarantine and being taken to a new city, Afghans placed in Bristol after fleeing Afghanistan share their experiences of starting from scratch in a new country.

Yusef, Sherbano, Malalai and Afzal speak about the level of support they have.

We also hear from members of Bristol city council about learning hundreds of refugees would be arriving in hotels and how they’ve tried to find accommodation for them.

From new babies, new jobs and new skills the refugees share how they’re helping each other find their feet and move forwards, but their minds are still with family left back in Afghanistan.
