Scrap Metal For Food Scraps: A Tajik Widow's Struggle To Survive
Mahbuba Ghanieva, a 45-year-old widow, says she was kicked out of her house in Tajikistan by her husband's family after he died in 2012. She and her two daughters now survive by collecting scrap metal and other trash along mountain paths and dusty roads. They earn $3 per day and receive no support from the government. But she still wants an education for her children.
