FIFA evacuates 100 refugees from Kabul, including female soccer players

FIFA has helped evacuate nearly 100 refugees, including female soccer players, from Afghanistan. Independent I understand.

A group of mainly women and girls left Kabul on a flight to Doha on Thursday.

FIFA received relief program support from the Qatar government. The Qatari government worked closely with them to ensure an escape.
