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.
Last year, EMERGENCY trained 27 surgeons at our hospitals across Afghanistan. Each one will work to save lives threatened by this destructive conflict.
We are committed to sustainable projects, ensuring local people have the training they need to become high-quality healthcare professionals.
This is just one of the ways we stand with the Afghan people. Because Afghanistan is more than war.
