Afghanistan’s ‘hill of widows’ live in a world apart

In this photograph taken on March 20, 2017, Afghan widows and residents walk to the home of Anissa Azimi, 38, the daughter of the founder of the ‘Widows Hill’, Bibikoh, in Zanabad on the outskirts of Kabul.

A perfect mum VS a perfectionist mum

I have a daughter who is 17 months old. She is bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and full of wonder, usually running in the face of danger and always in search of adventure.
