Children playing football in a ruin on the outskirts of Kabul. The family have returned to their homeland after many years as refugees. Their father, forty-five-year-old Dawlat Khan, reveals, "I lost my job when we fled from Kabul during the war. When I arrived back home in 2003, I did not have any job. I cannot afford to pay for a house or an apartment, so my family have to live in this ruin." Around 3.7 million Afghan refugees have returned to their homeland since the fall of the Taliban at the end of 2001. However, the returnees face terrible living conditions in the country's capital. Many are living in the north of the city without any basic facilities in the derelict shells of buildings that were bombed during the civil war.
