Save Rural Afghan Women & Children With Healthcare

May 2009 Update

AIL has recently held several health education workshops and we’d like to share some comments made by participants after the workshops.

“From this workshop I have learned many new things and plan to implement them in my life. I have learned that it is important for a mother to try and prevent herself from getting sick since prevention is better than curing a sickness. I plan to implement the preventions I’ve learned in my life and teach it to my children.”

“I did not vaccinate my child because I did not think it was important, but now I will do it as soon as I leave the workshop. Now I understand how important it is for my child’s health.”
