International: Afghanistan: Afghan-6

Women in burkas wait with their children at a food distribution center in Kabul. Many women, having lost their husbands to the wars and conflicts raging in Afghanistan, cannot legally work or earn a living and are left begging on the streets or fighting long lines at aid organizations, to keep their family together. Many women must give up their children to the orphanage so that they can keep themselves and their children from starving to death.©Thomas James Hurst
