Description : Mohammed (35),is selling tea cups and coffee mugs from a roadside stall in central Kabul, Afghanistan. Ali lost one leg to a mine and the other in a rocket attack in his home province of Wardak, south-west of Kabul. With an 18 month-long small business loan of 300GBP from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Ali is able to maintain his business as a disabled man and thereby support his family. However, life is a struggle as he earns on average just 75p a day. Being especially vulnerable, Ali and his family receive supplementary food rations from the ICRC once every 3 months.
