EMERGENCY, the international organisation that has provided free, high-quality healthcare to over 11 million people around the world, has released a new project entitled Afghanistan20.
Maidan Shahr is a town around 50km from Kabul, on the main road from the capital to Kandahar.
20 years on, EMERGENCY's hospitals across the country have treated thousands of war victims.
Nadir, 12, and his cousin Hassan, 10, were walking back to their house when a small metal object caught their attention.
During the night of Friday 3 September, Taliban forces pushed further into the Panjshir Valley, reaching the village of Anabah where EMERGENCY's Surgical Centre and Maternity Centre are located.
EMERGENCY runs two major hospitals in Afghanistan’s Panjshir Valley: the Anabah Maternity Centre, and the Surgical & Paediatric Centre - providing free, high-quality healthcare to people living in the province and beyond.
"Yesterday, we received five patients with gunshot wounds from the airport."
“For two days, the hospital was overflowing, they added extra beds.”
