In a remote region of Afghanistan there exists a local clinic in which one female mid-wife treats all the women in multiple provinces. After becoming concerned about the plight of the women in the province to receive medical care, 4 soldiers began to go over to the local female clinic 3 days a week to work for a few hours assisting, partnering, and learning from the mid-wife. After many months of working closely with the mid-wife we became more involved in trying to get the clinic the supplies it needed to provide free health care. With over 70% of the population living in poverty, they couldn’t afford medical treatment even if they needed it. Helping and partnering with the local clinic, allows some of these women to get the medical treatment they so desperately need.
Thanks in advance for any help that you can offer!
