Farahnaz and her entire community fled the war that has been going between ISIS and Afghanistan’s government and took refugee at a camp in 2017 near to Jalalabad city. This newly established camp has horrible conditions for children, as dozen of them have died because of poor sanitation and lack of medical care. Farahnaz belongs to a poor family whose drug-addicted father works at a brick factory.
Farahnaz, now 11 years old, was a top student in her village school and couldn’t continue her education since they settled at the camp, where she is working alongside her mother waving carpet to make a living. Farahnaz came to Mehan Orphanage in 2017 to restart her school along with her sisters Noria and Nazo. She likes math and library, reading, drawing and watching movies. She wants to be a doctor to help her people.
She is now living in one of our safe houses.
