Change of luck

Posted on Jan 10, 2007  |   3264 views  

More than 4.5m Afghans have returned home since a UN voluntary repatriation programme began in 2002. But unemployment and insecurity have slowed down repatriation from Pakistan and Iran where an estimated 4m Afghans still live. Farmala Khan recently returned to his home village in the east after 25 years in exile. "My house was destroyed, and I had to sleep under a tree with my family," he says. Farmala's luck changed when he was helped by an aid organisation to start a weaving business. Now I want the attention of youth, how long we should suffer this type of life. What we can change to improve, have you ever think of it?
