Afghan malnourished hit by poverty and education

October 17, 2012

"A 30-minute drive from the heart of the Afghan capital along dusty pot-holed roads lie the slums of the city. In the distance are plains with some patches of greenery before they hit a mountain range that juts out of the earth. We're in Rahman Mina Camp, also known as the slum of Kabul. Dirty brown canvas tents litter the landscape, as children walk barefoot next to open sewers. A group of women, wearing blue burqas, carry their young children into one particular tent. On the outside is a UNICEF logo next to a sign for ACF International -- the two humanitarian organizations that fund this medical clinic, which is a last resort for some very desperate mothers."
