Medical and Surgical treatment to the victims of a decades-long war.
Start of activities
For over 40 years, war in Afghanistan has killed over 1,500,000 people, and created hundreds of thousands wounded and disabled, as well as over four million refugees. The war that begun in October 2001 continues to injure, kill and destroy. Furthermore, on the ground there is still the legacy of previous wars: anti-personnel mines and unexploded ordinance continue to mutilate children and adults, innocent civilians.
We started working in Afghanistan in 1999. Since then, we have treated more than 5,280,000 people: in a Country of just over 30 million people, we can say that nearly every 6th person has received our help.
