Two of Ken Ingram’s photographs from Afghanistan appear in Even Wars Have Limits: an exhibit by The Canadian Red Cross that raises awareness about children affected by armed conflict around the world.

The exhibit was displayed in multiple locations across Canada.

The following images were taken in Kandahar Province in 2009:

These bashful Afghan children offer a stark juxtaposition to their surrounding environment. Residential buildings (shown in the background) are dilapidated due to ongoing conflict and extreme    poverty. According to the translator who was assigned to me that day, most people in this community have lost at least one family member due to war in the past three decades.

About one hundred Afghan men and children were present to receive cooking supplies, flour and blankets. The items were quite heavy.     In this photo, children are guarding one of the few wheelbarrows that were available while an elder waited in a supply line that was demarcated by barbed wire.
