Founding EMERGENCY was a gut reaction, not just a mental decision.
EMERGENCY doesn’t just mean war surgery – it means medicine, rights and equality.
Simply put, they provide care - in every sense of the word.
Here’s to Shirin, and to the courage and strength of mothers everywhere.
One child at a time, one life at a time, midwives are an essential part of creating a safe environment for women and new-borns.
War may have brought him here - but it didn't take away his spirit.
Here, we always try to see the glass as half full. Even here in the Intensive Care Unit, where we monitor patients after their operations, waiting for them to wake back up again.
We reaffirm our deep commitment to #HealthForAll.
EMERGENCY's doctors and nurses listen to testimonies like these from our patients in Afghanistan and Iraq too often.
More than half of these attacks occurred in in the capital, where EMERGENCY’s surgical centre has been offering treatment to victims of war since 2001.
