Beggary in Kabul

Since over a decade, Kabul has been called the city of beggars by many. War and destitution has pushed many, particularly Afghan widows, to the streets for beggary. A large number of needy families send their children for beggary. Also a large number of beggars are disables, those who have lost their lambs in war and landmine incidents.

There has been no improvement in lives of this the most miserable and ill-fated portion of Afghan society since the establishment of transitional government.

The following photos are taken by a RAWA member who had a trip to Kabul in October 2002.
