Pul-e-Charkhi Prison

In Pul-e-Charkhi’s women’s prison on the outskirts of Kabul, Afghanistan, some inmates committed serious crimes, but others are incarcerated for drunkenness, asking for a divorce, or running away. Regardless of their crime, they all live together in dormitory-style rooms. Many children live with their mothers as they serve out their terms, as families reject  the accused and her offspring. Health care is limited and living conditions are rough. Some foreign prisoners are there accused of drug trafficking. Unable to communicate with their families back home to let them know where they are, they try as best they can to adapt and learn the local language.
