"I come from central Daikundi province and I want to go to Iran for work," Ghulam Hussain, 32 Cheap Hydro Flask 24 OZ , told Xinhua.
"Daikundi is a very poor province, we don't even have asphalted roads to take our products to the markets," Hussain who is a mason by profession said, adding even there is no asphalted road to connect Daikundi to Kabul.
"Earning a little money is better than nothing," Hussain whispered Cheap Hydro Flask 18 OZ ,adding that like millions of Afghans who have been living in Iran and Pakistan over the past several years with their own income, he was sure he could find a job there to support his family in Afghanistan.
