Increasing the clinic's reach in the community

By Davena Witcher | Executive Director

Greeting to all the amazing supporters of the AAHO clinic at the Aschiana School for Street Children!

The school year began the middle of March, and will remain in session through October.  The clinic provides check ups, urgent care and vaccines for the students on campus and their siblings.  The number of pediatric patients receiving medical services increases each month and we are delighted by the confidence the community is showing in the physicians and nurses.

The number of pediatric patients being treated for medical purposes has risen to an average of just under 300 per month.  Additionally, another 40 -50 children are routinely receiving vaccines each month.  The provision of these essential services right on the school campus is extreamly valuable in the long term health of these at risk children.

On going outreach into the community through education classes, and the hiring of additional staff, has had a positive impact in the lives of those living in the apartments and inter-displacement camps surrounding the clinic.  The clinic is averaging over 600 patients a month, and in May a total of 252 new patients were treated.  Additionally 40 ultrasounds were performed and over 1500 persciptions were filled at the clinic.

The security situation in Kabul remains tenuous and continues to threaten the daily lives of the children and their families living in this area.  The AAHO staff also feels the additional burden of not knowing where the next unreast will demonstrate itself.  Still, the presence of the clinic with it's reliable services and well stocked pharmacy, is a beacon of hope to the community.

The people of Afghanistan, and the AMOR staff, remain deeply grateful for your continued support.

Kindest regards,
