I am amazed that another school year has passed at the Ashiana School for Street Children and they are completing their year-end exams going into winter recess until the end of March 2016. How does this effect the AMOR Clinic you ask? Fortunately for the community, the clinic remains open throughout the winter and the only thing that changes is that children that may need urgent care services are not already right there on campus.
Achiana students receive 100% free services regardless of whether the school is open or not. All of the family members of the student receive all of their services at a 50% discount. So whether they are treated with an exam and diagnosis, need medications, or lab work done....they pay only 50% of the charges. As an example, an exam with a physician and diagnosis has a standard charge of 100 afs, or $0.64. Family members of the students pay just $0.32, and if this is too much additional discounts or free services are given.
The clinic is making steady progress on the path to increasing the numbr of patients receiving medical services or health education. As Afghans settle in for a wet, cold, snowy winter we look forward to being a beacon of hope for the communities we serve.
