“This is Asia, 14, she’s the mother of a two-year old boy and a baby girl. The thing that broke my heart is that she was still bleed­ing after giv­ing birth to her sec­ond child. She did not know why, did not have clean un­der­wear nor med­i­cal sup­plies. She was sad and anx­ious about her life, but she did not have any choice. If you’re 14 and you have two chil­dren, you lose con­trol over your health and your des­tiny. You will not de­cide any­thing, when you have sex, when you will have an­other child. A se­nior gy­nae­col­o­gist in the area told me: ‘At 14, in your country, girls’ lives are just be­gin­ning, in our country, it is when girls’ lives are end­ing.”
