"We had no idea, why our children were dying," explains 30-year-old Quarban Gul in this issue of the magazine. Like in so many other poor villages in Afghanistan, the 320 villagers in her village used dirty water for cooking and drinking.

Sons and daughters, mothers and fathers died because nobody had told them about good hygiene.
