Kabul, Afghanistan, February 2019 - Children play with kites in Polishina informal settlement. During the long winter of Kabul the unpaved roads of the camps turn into muddy alleys. Heating the makeshift houses is also hard, often refugees collect wood in the garbage to warm up. Almost two-thirds of the Afghan population lives in areas directly affected by conflict and many families took the tough decision to relocate to refugee camps near urban centers. According to UNHCR data 340 thousand people were forced to flee from their homes in 2018 setting the total of internal displaced people to a record number of almost 2 million. >< Kabul, Afghanistan, February 2019 - Bambini giocano con gli aquiloni nell'insediamento di Polishina.

Secondo i dati dell'UNHCR, 340mila persone sono state costrette a fuggire dalle proprie case nel 2018, portando il totale degli sfollati interni a un numero record di quasi 2 milioni.
