Caption: Afghanistan 2009, Kabul

Fridwan Muhammed Sharif (27) died because of Drugs, his body can only be taken by the ambulance if his fellow addicts change his clothes for their clothes. because of this act of compassion he will be buried properly

At the basement of the building people vegetate on the ruins, smell is awful and the scenery tragic.
Opium and Heroin addicts live in the old Russian theater, that is totally destroyed during the previous wars.
As drug addiction is raised by 60% last year, the problem is out of control for local authorities.
Drug addicts work or be a bagger in the Kabul streets every 3 days to pay their addiction, buying bread is more expensive some say.
Most of them realize that their life expectation is only a few years, but see no future perspective and return to drugs after rehabilitation.
