Home Office officials said this could continue for months until suitable homes are found.

Some Afghan refugees who fled from the Taliban are asking to be sent back home due to the poor conditions they're facing in the UK.

Many Afghan families have been stuck in hotels since being sent over.

Home Office officials said this could continue for months until suitable homes are found.

In August, Operation Warm Welcome was launched by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, but the program backfired, showing many now want to return home.

The program was set out for the 7,000 Afghan arrivals to “rebuild their lives, find work, pursue education and integrate into their local communities.”

But some refugees have said they “can’t take this anymore," the Guardian reported.

A doctor told the newspaper:

“I’ve had a few patients telling me they want to go home."

“One guy, who was 67, kept saying: “I can’t take this anymore. I have to get out of this (hotel) room."

He said another stated:

“‘I just want my freedom from the hotel.’ I had to put him on medication and his wife because they were so upset.”

Cllr Danny Thorpe of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, said the lack of support was “unforgivable.”

Lead doctor at the Helen Bamber Foundation, Jill O’Leary, said the situation was “muddled and confused,” as some contractors were unaware of their responsibilities.

A Home Office spokesperson reportedly said:

“The UK’s biggest and fastest emergency evacuation in recent history helped over 15,000 people to safety, and hotels remain a temporary measure to help accommodate those we brought here."

"It is going to take time to find permanent homes for everyone, but we are working urgently with our partners to do so."

“Our aim is to support everyone who is resettled here to build a successful life in the UK, and that is why we work around the clock to provide wrap-around support to families."

"This includes working closely with local authorities across the UK to ensure everyone temporarily accommodated in hotels has access to essential provisions, healthcare, education, and universal credit.”
