As Kabul airport descended into chaos, Shukria began messaging everyone she knew who might help them get out. In the early hours of Monday, August 23rd Shukria and her husband arrived in the UK on a military jet into RAF Brize Norton, thanks to Debbie Abrahams, MP for Oldham East and Saddleworth, and others who continued to pressure Whitehall.
