Mahdi – Afghanistan

I will start school this year and I am so excited about it. I want to go to the city with my mom to buy some books, cloths and a bag. I love playing football and I usually go out to play with our neighbors. My dad is unable to work as he has hurt his back two years ago while carrying heavy weights. He needs to undergo surgeries but we can’t unfortunately afford it. My mom is a housewife but she does some needlecraft/sewing. Her income is though very little. The money we get for living is thanks to the contribution of our relatives and friends. We live in a muddy house with minimum equipment in a very faraway village. There is neither drinking water nor electricity here. We need to drive to a neighbor village just to get drinking water.
