We sometimes forget that sometimes the simplest of treatments can be life-changing and life-saving.
In the beginning of March, a young family visited Afshar Hospital. The father was concerned about his young son’s health, since his family had been sick for several weeks during the extreme and severe cold conditions Afghanistan experienced.
As doctors examined each member of the family, the doctors shifted their concern for the young child, to the mother. Among a variety of other symptoms and problems such as dizziness and exhaustion, it was determined that the underlying cause of her complaints was malnutrition.
The mother, along with the other members of the family received medical treatment including protein packs that were provided by Xango, one of Afshar Hospitals partners.
The picture below was taken of the family at their two-week follow up appointment, where doctors were pleased to report, with correct nutritional supplements each member of the family is doing much better.
There are hundred of families, just like this one whose lives have been saved with simple treatment. However, prior to the opening of Afshar Hospital, there were no resources for these families, and unfortunately many lives were lost. Get involved today in helping AMOR continue to provide life-saving resources to families in Afghanistan.
