A long journey… an important one that has a primary goal: supporting women. From the Panjshir Valley to Milan, passing through Brussels and finally back to where everything started: Afghanistan.. but this time Kabul. On Wednesday, we presented our Maternity…
This is our mission. Trying to obstruct it is unacceptable and represents a serious violation of international humanitarian law, as well as putting thousands of victims’ lives at risk”, concludes Rossella Miccio, President of EMERGENCY.
So far, we have treated more than 5 million patients at our First Aid Posts (FAPs).
‘A Quiet Revolution’ is EMERGENCY’s report analysing the impact that a free, specialist Maternity Centre can have on the health and societal role of the women who are part of it: both patients and staff.
Every Saturday, thanks to our partnership with some locals, we identify the most needy areas and organise meetings in which our health promoters engage, above all, women and children.
Our rules: Do not enter with weapons. Do not enter with violence. And do not even enter with a desire for it.
Working together towards a world without war is the first step in guaranteeing a future for humanity.
‘A Quiet Revolution’, a report from EMERGENCY due to be published on 15 October, was created to analyse how the system set up by the organisation in the Panjshir Valley can provide a model to be replicated in other areas of the country and elsewhere.
I take them in my arms as soon as I see them in the ward, when I can, I try to take some pictures so I can also see them again when I’m in Cagliari…waiting for the next call to come.
We still like to remember her surrounded by people who were given the chance of a new life by EMERGENCY.
