25 Emergency Surgeries Have Been Done

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for your interest in our project Emergency Health Care for Poor Afghan Women. So far, with funds from other sources, the AIL clinics in Herat Province have been able to provide 25 poor women with surgeries they would not otherwise been able to afford; surgeries ranging from appendectomies to cesarean section. This project has the ability to provide surgeries to even more poor Afghan women who have no other way to afford the life saving care they need. 

In Afghanistan, clinics and hospitals were thought of as places where you would go to die, but this is not the way that AIL clinics are viewed. AIL’s clinics are trusted by the communities that they serve. The AIL clinics have become known for the very high quality of care that they provide to all patients, and women are now coming to the clinics when they need care. So far we have not received any donations to this project, but we are hoping that this will change very soon and allow us to provide even more women with the life changing, and potentially life saving, procedures that they need.
