Hundreds of thousands of displaced Afghans are living in makeshift camps in parks across Kabul. Many were made homeless during the chaotic US withdrawal from Afghanistan but hope they can return home soon. Large numbers of people have also been displaced due to drought and the Covid-19 pandemic. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates that as of July 2021, more than 3.5 million people had been displaced, largely because of these factors.
