HEALTHCARE AFGHANISTAN ARETE STORIES

 

HEATH CARE - AFGHANISTAN - ARETE Stories

Visited remote areas in north Afghanistan documenting medical outreach programmes.

In conjunction with SPANA, a UK based charity, doctors visit remote areas in north Afghanistan where health services are limited.  Many pregnant and sick women are unable to reach a health centre and so doctors visit different villages providing basic health care and education.  SPANA is a UK-based charity dedicated to improving the welfare of working animals such as donkeys. With the support of this charity a donkey saddle has been developed to help women travel across difficult terrain comfortably when pregnant and reach clinics in order to give birth safely.
