23 years ago, EMERGENCY opened a First Aid Post in Afghanistan.
Our logistician in Kabul has distributed packages of new medical supplies to our hospital pharmacies, ready to be catalogued and stored.
Antibiotics, anaesthetics, painkillers, disinfectants, surgical gloves, sutures…items that are difficult to find in Afghanistan but fundamental to support patients that need us.
They arrived in the capital via a humanitarian airlift organised by EU Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid
These are high-quality supplies, which will allow us to rely on a sufficient stock of the materials to maintain the high standard of treatment we offer to Afghan people day after day.
Difficulties in supplying medicines and materials are just one of the effects that the ongoing humanitarian crisis is having, compounded by millions of people without food and shelter.
The situation in the country is severely critical.
Caring means not forgetting those in need.
