Afghan Refugee Boys in Pakistan

On saturday, i planned with my cousin to go for trip on Tarbela Lake near Haripur. When we reached to place i saw a boys returning from school having UNHCR bags on their backs. They are Afghan Refugees. We stop my bike and asked them to come here. When they came near to us, i feel very shameful to see that they don't have proper dresses, no shoes, no proper uniform as it was a cold day. They wearing slippers instead of black shoes. I can feel the way they live in their tents. They don't have electricity, gas and even pure clean water for drinking. They walk about miles for fetching clean drinking water for him and their family. They have some animals from which they take milk and buy their wool to earn money for living. One guy taking some of chocolates, to buy them to people and earn money. One guy with material of polishing the shoes. As we know this age of life is not for working but for playing and enjoying.
