My locale Dehdadi was assaulted not many weeks back. The region is presently influenced quite a bit by control. My dad can’t go to his ranch any longer. My entire family is stuck there,” says Anwary, who has his dad, two moms and five more youthful siblings back home.

“Taliban is known to assault the force sources first, with no force, interchanges go down. My family has been living like that. We have not talked for quite a long time on the grounds that there is no power and no real way to charge telephones et al. I’m really anxious yet can’t do anything,” he says.

While food, lease and charge is completely dealt with under the grant, Anwary — with no monetary help from family and no work close by — has needed to get cash from his cousin in Germany. “My family is in an awful circumstance and can’t uphold me monetarily any longer. I’m chasing for a task here,” he says.

He echoes the feelings shared by Farhad’s family. “My family was glad when I had left. In any case, have advised me not to return. ‘We couldn’t say whether you will live on the off chance that you return,’ they say.”
