Medical and surgical treatment for the victims of a decades-long war.
Start of activities
For over 40 years, Afghanistan has been devastated by a conflict that has killed over one million people, left hundreds of thousands wounded and disabled, and created over four million refugees. The war that began in October 2001 continues to injure, kill and destroy. The legacy of previous wars continue to remain: anti-personnel mines and unexploded ordinance continue to wound children and adults, overwhelmingly civilians.
We started working in Afghanistan in 1999. Since then, we have treated over 6 million people.
