Afghan boy

With the historical beginning of the War in Afghanistan, many local Afghans have sought refuge in other overseas countries, including Iran, to escape with difficulty protracted wars, lack of employment and economic deprivation. This boy's name is Ghaibullah, from Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan, 18 years old. He was born into an extensive family and has been immigrated to Iran with his younger brother. They are merely engaged in construction work with unpleasant circumstances and severely reduced standard wages on the outskirts of Tehran. It should be unoverlooked that regardless of all moral laws, everyone typically allows the essential right to reside anywhere in this civilized world.
