After the repercussion of the lack of shelter for more than 90 Afghans who were camped at the São Paulo International Airport, in Guarulhos, fleeing from the Taliban regime, the group was sent to a Special Shelter Center for Families (CAE), in the East Zone of São Paulo, on September 16th.
The humanitarian operation was developed by the Federal Public Ministry (MPF) with several institutions. The aid was necessary because all the shelters in the city were full since the immigrants started arriving in larger numbers. The arrival of the groups started last year, when American troops ended 20 years of military intervention in Afghanistan and the extremist group Taliban returned to power. In September 2021, the Brazilian government published a decree establishing the granting of temporary visas for humanitarian reception purposes to Afghan citizens. The number of Afghans fleeing the Taliban regime and arriving in Brazil tripled from May to August. Last month, 153 Afghans entered the country through São Paulo International Airport.
