Portraits from a Hospital – Kandahar 2009 and 2013
In 2009 I spent 2 weeks covering the situation in Mirwais Hospital in Kandahar, Afghanistan. I returned back to cover the situation in 2013, four years later. The capacity of the hospital was still full and occupied. The war wounded coming in was similar to 2009 but the increase of issues affecting children was on the rise especially Tuberculosis Meningitis.
