A small child looks through the window of her family mud shelter in one of Kabul slums. December 2011, Afghanistan.
There are many children living in squat settlements, shanty towns and slums of Kabul. Most of them are deprived access to education, to food enough times a day, to safety of usual childhood. Many work or beg on streets trying to support family, gather garbage, get beaten, witness cruelty of war. In the Kabul slums 40% of them die before reaching their 5th birthday.
