Rafaela Persson photographed female drug addicts and their children in Afghanistan.
Drug addiction is an often-told story in Afghansitan, though female and child victims are rarely highlighted.

Their journey to rehabilitate themselves has them on the perilious border between addiction and sobriety, a story of many failures and few successes.
