Little Zubaida Hasan lived with her family in a small, remote village in Afghanistan. In 2001, when she was just 9 years old, Zubaida was caught in a fire that would change her life forever. The flames burnt most of her face and chest.
1Her burns were very serious. The lower half of her face had literally melted into her chest. Her parents took her to all of the local hospitals, but the doctors said they couldn’t do anything for her.
Then, in 2002, a year after the accident, her father tried taking her to a US military base.
