Afghanistan’s conflicts have had a profound effect on people from many backgrounds in the country’s capital, Kabul.
While a small number of foreigners have been staying in hiding for decades, among ordinary Afghans the conflict has led to the lives of many people living or working there to be turned into nightmares.
Inevitably, the violence has had a wider impact, causing people to leave Kabul and much of Afghanistan, in search of security or jobs that are hard to find in a place where the media are dominated by the recent terror attacks.
In this series we tell the stories of some of these people and those who seek to help them.
