On Wednesday 11 January at 4pm, there was an explosion near the Afghan Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kabul.
Today, our all-woman team at the Anabah Maternity Centre is working to provide the highest level of healthcare to mothers and babies, just as they do every day.
Since the opening of this incredible facility in 2003, our midwives’ outstanding professionalism and commitment has helped deliver more than 71,000 babies. Our current team assisted 1,377 births in the first three months of 2022 alone!
To all the midwives who have worked here, and the team at the hospital today, thank you.
Afghanistan still has one of the highest maternal and infant mortality rates in the world. Your work plays a part in changing this, protecting women’s dignity, and the right to receive care.
