After 30 years of war, some eight million people had fled their homes, most of them to neighboring Pakistan and Iran. In the wake of the fall of the Taliban, more than five million Afghans have returned home. The major challenges to returning are primarily lack of housing, jobs, and safe drinking water.
The Khaled Hosseini Foundation is partnering with the United Nations refugee organization (UNHCR) to provide the materials and know-how to help Afghans build their own homes. Shelter is especially important in Afghanistan where the average temperature is 25 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter. Families without shelter typically lose their children and elderly to the cold.
