In memory of


A 9-year-old girl

A 10-year-old girl

died on December 17, 2001

just outside the Maslakh refugee camp in Herat. Four children were collecting firewood for their families (to cook and especially provide heat in the bitter Afghan winter). Two girls picked up a shiny yellow canister which blew up and killed them, injuring the two other children.
