Fall Report on AMOR Achiana Health Clinic (AAHC)

By Davena Witcher | Development Director

Dear Project Supporters,


It was a pleasure to visit the AAHC clinic in person two weeks ago and see the progress being made first hand. Children were receiving treatment, families were in the waiting room, and prescriptions were being filled. The clinic is enjoying an organized opening and the clean exam rooms, each with its own sink to promote infection control, are spacious and well stocked.


I appreciated learning from Aschiana’s Director, Engineer Yousef, that there are five Inter-Displacement camps within walking distance of the clinic.  Approximately 150,000 families from provinces throughout Afghanistan, who have sought temporary refuge here in Kabul, live in these camps with an average family size of eight; one surviving parent and seven children. This means that the pediatric catchment population for the clinic, just from the surrounding camps, is over 1 million children!  What an incredible opportunity we have to change the outcome of so many young lives by providing vaccines, basic health care, and health education to this vulnerable population.


To increase awareness about the clinic opening, the services being provided, and the general health benefits of vaccines and clean water, we have begun exploring a community outreach program.  Ideally a health educator will visit each of the camps on a routine basis, provide basic health education, and encourage the children and their
parents to take full advantage of the clinic services.

The potential outreach of this well placed clinic is tremendous. It is your continued financial support for this project that make it possible for AMOR to provide life saving health care and health education to the children in the Wazir Akbar Khan District in Kabul.  Thank you for your generosity!  Please take a minute to review the new project photos I have attached.   I look forward to continuing to share with you the progress that is being made in the number of patients being treated and the variety of services provided.
