"We're talking about people who are used to going through shocks and stresses, but they've just exhausted their coping mechanisms".
The United Nations (UN) has said that now 60 million people in the world are refugees, asylum seekers or homeless in their own country whereas Pakistan hosts 1.4 million refugees. About 3.3 million people were displaced, with 737,400 being externally displaced. The country allows refugees to work and travel freely, access Ugandan social services and gives them a plot of land to live on, and another to farm.
