Program Title: Afghanistan's refugee crisis: The view from Pakistan
Description: Seventeen-year old Zakirullah, who didn't give his surname, and his family drove for three days from Afghanistan to the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan, seeking medical help for his mother.

He is one of many Afghan refugees who have made the journey after the Taliban took control of his home country, in light of rising food prices and the currency falling. He says they are 'in search of a better life'.

Today on Front Burner, CBC senior correspondent Susan Ormiston tells us their stories. She's been reporting from Pakistan for the last few weeks, with an eye on the country's growing role in addressing Afghanistan's refugee crisis.
