In July, we treated 326 patients for war wounds at our Kabul Surgical Center:
more than 10 per day.
It’s the highest number recorded in our Afghanistan hospitals since 1999.
The situation is getting worse day by day. Our hospitals are full and our ambulances keep going back and forth, ferrying the injured from the various First Aid Posts scattered around the country. Another month has only just begun, and it doesn’t look promising. Today alone we took in around a dozen wounded in Lashkar-gah.
