This Kabul orphanage is struggling to feed its children as it runs low on cash
Since the Afghan Taliban seized control of the country and millions of dollars in aid suddenly dried up Ahmad Khalil Mayan, programme director at a large Kabul orphanage, says he is cutting back on the amount of fruit and meat he gives the children each week because the home is running out of money.

Samira, 9, poses for a photo in the living room at her orphanage, in Kabul, Afghanistan, October 10, 2021. Samira wants to be a doctor when she grows up. "I want to serve my homeland and save others from disease, and I also want other girls to study so that they become a doctor like me in the future," she says with a sheepish grin. Because of her age, Samira is still able to go to school outside the orphanage, and is already taking extra classes in order to get ahead. Hardship has not dented her ambition, but she also recognises that in order to achieve her goals, she may have to go abroad to study. "I am not allowed to study here".

Ahmad Khalil Mayan, 40, the director of the orphanage, reviews school notes with a girl, in Kabul, Afghanistan, October 12, 2021. Mayan says he is cutting back on the amount of fruit and meat he gives the children each week because the orphanage is running out of money. Since the Afghan Taliban seized control of the country and millions of dollars in aid suddenly dried up, he has been desperately calling and emailing donors, both foreign and local, who supported him before.?"Unfortunately, most of them have left the country" he said "We are now trying to run the place with very little money and with little food".

Children attend lessons at their orphanage in Kabul, Afghanistan, October 10, 2021. Orphanages like this play an outsize role in Afghanistan, where tens of thousands of civilians have been killed in wars that have ravaged the country for more than 40 years. The lack of funding, which has hit charities, non-governmental organisations and ordinary Afghans since the hardline Islamist Taliban movement took back control of the country, is forcing orphanage director Ahmad Khalil Mayan (not pictured) into tough choices. "Before we were providing them twice a week fruit and twice a week meat, but we cut those items to just once a week or maybe not even (that much)".
