Project update - September 2020

While the fear of Covid-19 pandemic still remains intact; FMIC continues to provide its high quality healthcare services to the people of Afghanistan. The main hospital was kept as a safe haven for general patients whereas dedicated Covid-19 testing and treatment centres were established to provide services. It is pertinent to mention that at the Covid-19 treatment centre in FMIC; not a single staff was infected merely due to high level of compliance with the protocols and proper use of PPEs. The continuity of regular services at the main hospital was a ray of hope for patients coming from different provinces of Afghanistan. It is also important to note that at FMIC we receive highly complicated cases such as in women and children section, we mainly receive such cases which cannot be handled in local hospitals at the provincial level. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is one such facility which is in fact the first ever NICU in the country in place since 2016.

FMIC has so far served over 1.5 million patients from all parts of Afghanistan through its in-patient and out-patient services. In diagnostics, 4.3 million Laboratory Tests and 0.8 Million Radiology Procedures have been performed thus far. FMIC’s Patient Welfare Programme underwrites the cost of care for people who cannot afford to pay for all or part of their treatment. During the year 2019 alone, 42,598 patients were supported through patient welfare program with a financial contribution of US$ 2.3M by FMIC. Since FMIC’s inception in 2006 to date FMIC’s Patient Welfare Program has spent over $39 million so far in providing the medical and surgical care to those in critical need.

We are highly grateful to the generosity of our donors for their support to the patient welfare which ultimately helps us serve the most deserving and deprived segments of the society. 

Envision a child or mother suffering from life-threatening diseases in an impoverished and war-affected zone. Imagine that just a few dollars contributed by you can help save lives and improve quality of life for many. For example, $10 will pay for an initial visit to a doctor, $15 will pay for one-night stay of a patient in general ward, $65 will pay for one night stay of a patient in the Intensive Care Unit.  We do appreciate your continued support and cooperation!
