A recovering drug addict and her 4 month old baby, also addicted to opium, are seen in a drug treatment clinic in Mazar-e Sharif, 26 September 2013. The woman had suffered heavy bleeding after giving birth and her mother in law insisted she take heroin to manage the pain and treat the problem. As her baby was crying a lot, the mother was told to give it opium too. (John D McHugh)
