Mazari Sharif, Afghanistan: A girl with her younger baby brother, who was born with a handicap, and cannot walk. She and her family fled conflict and found refuge in Nahr-e-Shahi village, set in a barren land, 20 kilometers away from Mazar. Hundreds of families fled from conflict-affected areas of Faryab and Balkh and settled in IDP villages outside of Mazar City. As the conflict is still ongoing, they have not been able to return home and bought their own land and are building their houses with assistance from NRC(supported by the AHF).
