22-year-old Sharifa is one of the thousands of Afghan mothers struggling to overcome the hurdles that are posed by a healthcare system weakened by decades of war, poor facilities, and social and cultural barriers that are difficult to break.
EMERGENCY is proud to announce that Giulio Piscitelli’s award-winning photographic exhibition Zakhem | Wounds: When War Comes Home is coming to London.
Inspired by his recent visit to EMERGENCY’s Surgical Centres in Kabul and Lashkhar-Gah, Piscitelli shines a light on some of the many civilian casualties in a conflict that has raged for eighteen years.
Subjected to intense physical and mental trauma, these innocent men, women and children are rarely afforded the voice or solidarity that their hardships deserve.
Lasting five days and with free entry, this exhibition promises to be both powerful and thought provoking. For more information click here.
