In 2020, Afghans were not just hit by a global pandemic, but also continued to endure an endless conflict that wounds and kills so many people.
A long night in our Kabul Surgical Centre: the 3 operating theatres and emergency room worked tirelessly to treat 32 people wounded after a powerful car bomb attack in Pul-e-Alam.
Afghanistan recorded 3,458 civilian casualties within the first half of 2020 according to UNAMA News. This conflict continues to ravage the country and destroy lives.
From our hospitals in Afghanistan, we reiterate the need for an enduring ceasefire, constructive talks and a new era of peace.
Afghanistan is more than war.
