Hashim is on the Road to Recovery

Hashim was riding his motorbike to the bazaar in Grishk, Afghanistan when he was hit by a car.

While fighting in Helmand province, once a hub of conflict, has subsided, civilian trauma from road traffic accidents, stabbings and other injuries still requires major surgical interventions.

The driver quickly brought him to EMERGENCY’s First Aid Post in Grishk, one of over 40 clinics we operate to provide critical health services in some of the most remote parts of Afghanistan.

Our nurses in Grishk stabilised Hashim before sending him to the Surgical Centre in Lashkar-Gah in one of our ambulances, which operate 24/7 to connect our First Aid Posts, hospitals and anyone in need of medical assistance.

Now, the 33-year-old is on the road to recovery.
