The Wider Image: This Kabul orphanage is struggling to feed its children as it runs low on cash
Samira, 9, and other children share tea and bread for breakfast at the orphanage before going to school in Kabul, Afghanistan, October 12, 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". REUTERS/Jorge Silva.
