On World Refugee Day, Mahira Khan has joined hands with UNHCR yet again to create awareness about Pakistan's Afghan refugees.

Uploading a series of tweets and videos, Mahira stressed how Afghan refugees are people just like us, only they're victims of displacement and terrorism.

She also uploaded a video adding that we as a nation have created a home for these refugees in our homeland.

"Refugees are victims of war and terrorism, they have suffered hardship, loss and displacement," she said.

The video also features short interviews of Afghan refugees living in Pakistan as well as short clips of actor Yasir Hussain and UNHCR representative in Pakistan, Ruvendrini Menikdiwela.
