We fund operations for children from all over Afghanistan at the French Children’s Hospital in Kabul. The money also pays for aftercare, travel and accommodation for them and their parents at the nearby Children’s Pavilion.
Most operations are for problems that children have had since birth, such as heart disease, hip dislocations, club foot and cleft lip. The children are from low-income families who would otherwise not be able to get this treatment.
In 2018 we paid £10,100 for operations for 11 children and two mothers. This included four heart operations, three dislocated hips, two cases of treating limbs after severe burns, and the removal of tonsils.
Without your support, these children would have no chance of receiving such life-changing medical treatment.
