Clinics cope with added pressures

***There are only a few days left to donate in 2021! We would love your support for our projects. Thank you!***

AIL’s health program is continuing to receive a high volume of patients due to the Covid pandemic and the economic and political situation in Afghanistan.  Many people have been displaced from their homes and have come into the cities of Herat and Kabul. Local people have directed many of them to AIL facilities for health care. The clinics are therefore dealing with their usual patient load and Internally Displaced Persons as well.

We are seeing a sharp increase in the number of malnourished children, injuries and disease and illness caused by dirty water and lack of hygiene. There is also the effects of mass trauma in people. There is an acute shortage of supplies and medicines and Covid vaccines.

Despite all the difficulties of the last months AIL staff have performed admirably adapting their facilities and procedures to deal with new challenges. They have continued with their usual programs such as vaccinations, reproductive health and nutrition with many hours of health education given. Our health education program is vital to breaking the cycle of ill health and all clinic attendees receive education. Our 2022 plan includes, twelve  5- day reproductive health workshops with 30 women in each (total 360).

Clinic staff person:“Polio is a dangerous disease but unfortunately many mothers in Afghanistan still don’t know how to prevent it. We offer advice to our visitors and patients about it. I told one patient about polio and explained the benefits of vaccination. Her children were unvaccinated and the next day she returned to the clinic with her children and with the next door neighbor’s children. All of them received vaccinations and the mother was grateful for the health information and is eager to learn more about how to prevent disease and illness.” 

AIL Outreach 2021:23,905 students, 18,132 PPE distributed, 6 health clinics, 50-bed Covid-19 hospital, 95,593 patient treatments, 59,888 health education, 13,050 food aid families served, 22 radio broadcasts daily, 8 hours of TV programs, 12 provinces reached. 

Thank you for your support which is needed more than ever. Your donations have enabled life-saving health education and treatment for many poor Afghans.
