Child bride Kabul

The 24 year old Asifa lives in a hidden shelter in Kabul. She was the daughter of a Taliban father who sold her to a man who was 30 years older. When Asifa refused to marry him, her father stabbed her several times in the head with a knife and left her for death. Luckily she was rescued by the NGO AWSDC in Kabul
