1.2 million displaced by Afghanistan war
It’s the longest war in our history.
The plight of internally displaced people has worsened in Afghanistan in recent years, despite the government launching a policy in 2014 to try and help them. Amnesty says that government corruption, inadequate funding and a lack of global support have all contributed to the policy’s failure.
As well as living in dire conditions, the internally displaced also face forced evictions from their makeshift camps.
