Thousands of people tried fleeing away from war-torn Afghanistan after the Taliban took control of the nation. While people tried to get away from their homeland as soon as possible, there were several saddening tales of families separating from each other.
However, many Afghans have taken refuge in different parts of the world and one of them shared a picture from the US.
A Twitter user and an Afghan refugee named Hamed Ahmadi shared a picture of the food he’s being served at the US camp of Fort bliss El Paso, Texas.

He wrote, “Not complaining but this is what I got last night for dinner and the next meal is 12 hours later. Refugee life might be safe but never easy & favourable. Fort Bliss El Paso Texas.”
The meal included some anaemic chicken slices and fruit.

The picture he shared received many different responses. While many trolled him for showing a picture like this, many defended him and criticised the amount of food he’s getting at the camp.
How about “thank you”? Be grateful. Have some humility and exhibit some dignity. No one owes you anything. I’m a refugee from Lebanon and I’m forever
