@womenphotograph - Women Photograph | Photo by @magdarakita from the project “My Liver is Bleeding” about mental health and Post Traumatic Stress among the civilian population in Afghanistan. 
Mullah Sakhi Jan says a prayer over a 13-year-old girl who was hit by a car the day before and had injured her leg. Many come to mullahs for guidance and help with medical problems, including those with mental health issues. While some mullahs, after offering traditional prayer and amulets, tell their clients to go see a doctor, not all are as progressive. (See previous post) 
Getting access to them was challenging and I had only one opportunity to photograph a mullah performing a ritual. 
Thank you for the opportunity to share this story here.
