UK to resettle teenage Afghan women footballers and families

«I’m absolutely thrilled for them to have a second chance at life,» said the chairman of the foundation, Jonathan Kendrick, who financed the operation to get them on buses out of Afghanistan and to stay in Lahore. «This is a whole new world they are taking on and I’m sure with the football community supportive to their plight, they will settle in and be able to experience all of the joys life gives.»
