Image 1 of 10


AFGHANISTAN: The central-Asian country is the worst place to be a mom, according to Save the Children. Every year, 50 million women in the developing world give birth with no professional help, and Afghan children face a 1 in 4 risk of dying before age 5. Here, an Afghan girl carries a ration from a food distribution program for her mother in Kabul on April 15, 2010. The mother is a victim of a land mine explosion and a war widow.
