In the first two months of the year, AIL has provided 34,490 patients with health care and given health education to 23,690. This care and education is of top quality and changes lives for the better. The local people travel miles to attend one of AIL’s 4 fixed clinics, Learning Center clinic or Orphanage Clinic. They know they will be well cared for and at each visit learn something about how to protect their health in the future. Fifteen villages in Herat Province have Community Health Worker posts run by a man and woman team. They provide first aid, pregnancy and birth care and vaccinations and other health care matters. These units are particularly valuable to isolated villages giving the people a local, first stop for health needs. In January and February, CHWs made 6,764 visits to families.
Here is a story from Fareshta, an orphan who lives at the Herat orphanage. “One day I was feeling abdominal pains and it made me weak so I went to the doctor for treatment. The doctor started the checkup and he asked me what I ate the previous night and he also asked about the food that I had eaten at school. So I told him that I only ate a sandwich at school. He said I had food poisoning from bacteria. He gave me an injection and it worked and I felt better and the sickness was washed out of my system.The doctor also mentioned some issues and points which I should take care. For example, he said that I should not eat foods which have been cooked on the streets or outside of the home because it also makes us sick. So I promised the doctor that I would not eat those foods anymore as I don’t want to get sick again."
