The war has been devastating for a long time, but this year is particularly bad.
There was a 29% increase in civilian casualties from the violence in the first four months of this year compared to last, and we have seen this first hand in our hospitals across Afghanistan.

"Our hospitals are ready for the umpteenth round of fighting and for yet another year with record numbers of patients.- Emanuele Nannini, EMERGENCY Field Operations Department
After years of training, our Afghan staff are now managing their clinical work almost entirely independently.
All our facilities have been expanded and renovated to better handle the current volumes of patients.
Every day, we count the wounded, listen to Afghans’ stories of life and death, and hope for the day when war ends and our presence will no longer be needed here."
Afghanistan’s people need support right now.
