KABUL, AFGHANISTAN - FEBRUARY 2019: Shakila, 35 years old, stands in her mud house surrounded by her children in Hewad W all refugee camp in Kabul.

Her husband is addicted to heroin a nd she support her family begging in the city market. All of her daughters are already engaged, including 7-year-old Sabrina (on the right).

Sabrina’s father engaged her to a friend in order to repay a debt of 100.000Afs (around $1,300). After the engagement, half of the agreed sum is paid to the family. The other half is paid once the girls reach the right age to be married.

Almost two-thirds of the Afghan population lives in areas directly affected by conflict and many families took the tough decision to relocate to refugee camps near urban centers. (Photo by Lorenzo Tugnoli/ Washington Post/ Contrasto)
