Afghan Refugees

This is a very moving story about a young Hazara man who fled from Afghanistan to seek asylum in Australia, who wants to be reunited with his family.

And this story is also a good one to read to learn about the numbers of refugees fleeing from Afghanistan to safer, more stable environments:

According to Refugees United: “Afghan refugees have ended up all over the world. More than 2 million live in neighboring Pakistan, which sees them as a burden and a security threat. About a million live in Iran, which earlier this year was accused of deporting Afghan refugees. Others have fled as far as they can go, to the United States, Canada, Europe, Brazil, Indonesia, even New Zealand.”
