Success Story From One of AIL's Clinics

AIL’s clinics are often rural Afghan women’s only option for healthcare. A doctor in one of AIL’s clinics reports, “After coming into the clinic I began speaking with the patients waiting and noticed one woman who was sick with a different illness than the rest. I asked her what was wrong, and after a detailed explanation I examined her carefully and sent her to the laboratory for tests. After the tests, she came back to my office where I was able to recheck her. During the recheck I spoke with the woman about her living conditions, and she told me that she was very poor and couldn’t afford to go into the city. She always brings her family to our clinic for help, and is so thankful that she has access to good doctors and services.”

 This doctor also reported that the clinic’s nutrition program is having a positive impact on the village. The clinic has trained some villagers on how to properly cook vegetables. This woman was one of those who received this training. She said that she is now able to cook many more nutritious foods for her family, and feels that this clinic ‘is the best clinic to help in our society.’
