CAN YOU SEE ME? Naila is guided by her younger brother in a camp in Charsadda District. They have been displaced by the 2010 flooding, the worst in Pakistan’s recorded history. Naila, the eldest of three children, has been blind since birth. Her condition is treatable, but at a cost of over US$1,000, well beyond her family’s means. Her father hopes one of the agencies providing flood relief will be able to assist them with the treatment. - Pakistan, 2010 ©UNICEF/Noorani…
Can you see me? - Komali [NAME CHANGED] is 17. She left school after the seventh grade to help support her family. A young man took her to a brothel in the village of Bania Shanta, where, initially, she assisted the ‘madam’ with chores. For the last three years, Komali has been a sex worker there. An estimated 350 of Bania Shanta’s 700 residents are sex workers, and the village’s brothels are considered high risk for HIV transmission. - Bangladesh © UNICEF/NYHQ2009/Noorani
