Afghanistan

A full term pregnant woman awaits her 9th baby in her mud home in the refugee camp on the outskirts of Kabul.
Poor and uneducated, she will deliver the baby at home with the assistance of a traditional midwife instead of having her baby safely in a proper hospital.
Coming from a small village in the Kandahar province, they fled the constant violence and bombings. In debt now and with hardly enough food to feed all the children, they still choose the security of Kabul above the threat of violence in their home village. Kabul, Afghanistan, 2012
