Afghan Refugees in Pakistan

Pakistan/ Afghan refugees/ Children walk to school on a riverbead in the Khazana refugee camp. The camp was established when refugees flooded across the border from Afghanistan during the 1979 Soviet occupation. The refugee camp has a population of 2500 and during the 2010 floods that swept through Pakistan most families were affected. The majority of people rebuilt their houses after the floods with their own resources. The most vulnerable also received support from UNHCR for reconstruction. UNHCR/Sam Phelps/ November 2011.
