Euronews visits Afghan refugees living in desperation and squalor
Text size Aa Aa

Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced within Afghanistan.

Euronews visited a refugee camp near Kabul which is home to families mainly from war-torn parts of Helmand and other southern provinces.

They live in desperation and squalor.

Our correspondent spoke to one man who fled to the camp with his family.

Surrounded by children, he explained, “Some 850 families live in this camp. They are from Kandahar, Helmand and Uruzgan provinces.”

“I’m sorry to tell you this but even animals shouldn’t be living in this camp,” he added.

Most of the children in this camps don’t go to school.

Many suffer from malnutrition because of a lack of food and filthy drinking water.

The country’s security situation means these families are unlikely to return to the homes they fled anytime soon.
