22-year-old Sharifa is one of the thousands of Afghan mothers struggling to overcome the hurdles that are posed by a healthcare system weakened by decades of war, poor facilities, and social and cultural barriers that are difficult to break.
We struggle to believe it, but Dr Anton is no longer with us.
A war surgeon who taught his work to so many younger students, with perseverance and determination.
He left us today in Kabul, in the same hospital where he saved many lives and inspired other colleagues.
We will miss you Dr Anton.
A huge hug from us all to Miriam, Charlotte and Laila, his little Galician-German family.
