Aisha after the Taliban and then After the Americans.

A bit of good news for a change. Below is what Aisha, not her real name, looked like when the good Islamic Taliban leader allowed her husband to cut off her nose and ears and leave her for dead.

This is what she looks like now after being taken in care by the Grossman Burn Foundation in California. The GBF, which amongst other humanitarian activities supports the fight against the abuse of women, has given Aisha a prosthetic nose and will in time operate on her to permanently reconstruct her nose and ears.
