One of the families rescued by Portuguese soldiers in Kabul, Afghanistan, now lives in Felgueiras, Portugal.
Whether fate or not, the truth is that the family, consisting of a couple and four children, lives precisely in the homeland of the military man who brought them from Kabul.
It all started in late August. Sergeant Jorge Ribeiro was one of four Portuguese soldiers to participate in the withdrawal operation and Azim Abdul, his wife and four children, were one of 13 Afghan families to manage to leave the country.
Azim was an army officer and, with the arrival of the Taliban, he had to flee the country. The family was rescued from the Kabul airport, minutes before the terrorist attack that killed 13 Americans and 150 Afghans.
Shortly after Azim boarded, it was the turn of the children and his wife to set out on a new life.
