  • life for Kabul's street children is a daily battle to earn enough money so their families can eat. They leave their meager homes or shelters early in the morning, hoping to sell some cheap items or beg enough to survive. Most have had at least one parent killed in the war, and many are refugees. Since it is so difficult for widows to earn an income, being fatherless puts an even heavier burden on children and may force them to take to the streets as the family’s breadwinner. Each day, street children may put themselves in dangerous situations, such as approaching cars hoping for a handout or to sell sticks of gum and phone cards. Some pass a burning can of noxious fumes in front of passersby, promising to “ward off the evil eye” in exchange for a few coins. They may beg, sell plastic bags, look for scrap metal, shine shoes or do whatever they can for a little change. Along the way, many are abused. They live in fear of being robbed of their paltry earnings, their freedom, and even their lives ~ Copyright©: Sebastian Rich/UNICEF/All rights reserved.


    We photographers are nothing but a pack of crooks, thieves and voyeurs. We are to be found everywhere we are not wanted ~ We betray secrets that were never entrusted to us, we spy shamelessly on things that are not our business ~ And end up the hoarders of a vast quantity of stolen goods "  ~ Brassai

    A young girl incarcerated in a womens prison, Afghanistan for the so called 'moral crime' of running away from her seventy-seven year old husband. Afghan women and young girls often run away from home to escape forced or underage marriage, beatings, stabbings, burnings, rapes and even forced prostitution. 'Zina' (sex outside marriage) is also a crime under Afghan law, punishable by up to 15 years in prison. Some women and girls have been convicted of Zina after being raped or forced into prostitution. Prosecution of women who are survivors of gender-based violence has continued, and many abusers of women continue to go free ~ Photography by Sebastian Rich

    Teenage mothers and their children growing up today in Afghanistan have never known peace, and most live in poverty. Disease and lack of proper medicines have raised child mortality rates to emergency levels. Much of the infrastructure of the country has been devastated, access to education and health care for women and children remains extremely limited. One of every four children dies before their 5th birthday. Only 10 percent of pregnant women receive maternal health care, one in five children is born in a refugee camp. Only 3 percent of girls, and 39 percent of boys, are enrolled in school. 50,000 children are working on the streets of the capital, Kabul ~ Photography Sebastian Rich/Magnum-Insights

  • Zeinab is a nine year old a refugee from Syria living with her brothers and sisters in an informal settlement in Mafraq Northern Jordan.

    For Syrian refugees who are unable or unwilling to reside in formally established refugee camps and are unable to afford regular housing solutions within host communities, Informal Tented Settlements (ITS) have become the default option, notably for the most vulnerable and impoverished displaced Syrian households.

    The informal nature of these settlements means that access to shelter, food, water, sanitation, health, education, and other essential services is not officially established and often intermittent. Falling outside the relief response currently targeting refugees staying in managed camps and within host communities, displaced Syrian households living in ITS face serious difficulties in accessing protection and assistance. Zeinab is profoundly deaf due to a virus she contracted when she was just a few months old. She is pictured here with her pet pigeon.  ~ Copyright: Sebastian Rich/UNICEF/All rights reserved.
