Vanity care

Uzra Shamal
Mudslides in Badakhshan killed 2500 people in a single day and flash floods have devastated the northern Afghan province and neighbouring regions. Civil society efforts like 'the tent of empathy' in Mazar-e Sharif have seen hundreds of people collect donations to send to the affected victims. But Afghan social media pages have been equally inundated with criticisms of politicians and local officials who preferred to pose for pictures on site than offer support to victims. Emergency aid operations continue in the affected region, although officials have admitted that they don't expect to recover any more survivors from under the mud.
