Early morning outside the UN’s intake centre between the Pakistan border and the city of Jalalabad, in Afghanistan's Nangarhar province. This family lived almost 40 years in the Baraki refugee camp near the Pakistani city of Peshawar, but they’ve joined the mass migration home as Pakistan pressures them to leave.
At the intake centre, those who were registered as refugees in Pakistan are given a small amount of cash to help them resettle. From there, the convoys of trucks disperse throughout the country, bringing returnees to where they either came from originally, or perhaps where they still have family who can assist them with shelter in the short term.
