Halima, 32 years old, and her four children come from Afghanistan. They’ve been in The Netherlands for five months and are waiting for their asylum procedure to begin.
Halima was married off when she was 14. After 19 years of a marriage filled with violence and abuse, she’d had enough. When her husband wanted to marry off their 13 year-old daughter, she took her four children and fled, battling wind, illness, hunger and danger to bring her children to safety. Anything was better than the hell she left behind.
