Orphanage Mehan Orphanage

Age 16

Gender F

Mina joined Mehan in 2014 with her little brother and older sister. She had a difficult childhood because her family lived in Pakistan as refugees for a long time with no access to basic living services and facilities. They eventually returned to Ghazni, Afghanistan, their home province and their life was no better than in Pakistan because their village was under control of Taliban. Mina’s father suffered from his poverty and he was not able to provide food and education for his children. His Aunt brought them to AFCECO orphanages. Mina with her brother and sister joined the orphanages to continue their lives and education. She likes drawing and wants to be good painter.
