Summer has finally arrived in the last few days. The roses are blooming in our garden, and the EMERGENCY Surgical Center in Kabul, Afghanistan is looking spectacular. In the early morning, when we start work, there’s a strong scent of flowers that puts you in a good mood. However, the light-hearted feeling doesn’t last long. On average we take in 10 war victim patients a day, injured by firearms or landmines… it’s crazy. And the even crazier thing is that most of them are children.
