Afghanistan is a place of rugged beauty. It is a place of extreme hardship and filled with people of great strength. Some of these fiercely strong individuals are the War Widows of Afghanistan. Due to over 35 years of conflict many women are left widowed and destitute, making these women and their children vulnerable to begging or prostitution to care for their families.

On average these women are 35 years old and have more than four children to support.
