ISHKAR is hosting a print sale, bringing together award-winning photographers, artists, and photojournalists. Each have contributed images of an Afghanistan that we rarely see in the news. All proceeds from the sale of these prints will be donated to EMERGENCY Hospitals in Afghanistan; an amazing organization, providing free critical healthcare to one of the world’s most vulnerable populations.

Prints will be for sale online at special, one-off prices and available for a limited six week period: Saturday 8th August - Friday 25th September.


Prints will be dispatched after the sale closes.

The mountains are a fertile territory for the ideas of extremist Mullahs. Seen from the mountains, the level of corruption and speculation in Kabul and other cities is intolerable, especially the waste of aid money to the advantage of very few. The collateral damages of war are made worse by the damages of the war economy. There are many Mullahs that come from Pakistan to remote mountain villages to incite the restoration of order, ethics and decency. Mountain people are jealous of the little they have. Too often they adhere and take the side of the ‘students’ that once fought corruption: the Talibans.

Story

The photographer

Ferdinando Rollando was an Italian photographer, architect and alpine guide. In 2011 he moved to Bamiyan, Afghanistan, and spent 3 years working with the NGO Alpistan on avalanche prevention projects and training the first afghan mountain guides. His bond with the remote mountain communities of Afghanistan derived from his home-region Aosta Valley, in the Italian Alps, where he went missing in 2014 while climbing the Mont Blanc.

THE IMPACT

Since 1999, EMERGENCY has established a network of hospitals, first aid posts and public health clinics across Afghanistan, treating over 7 million patients in the country. As COVID-19 spreads, these centres will be in critical need of support. We hope to raise enough funds to provide EMERGENCY hospitals with protective essentials like hand-sanitiser and face masks and to directly support EMERGENCY’s treatment of other vulnerable individuals.
