“The general situation after the recent avalanche is complicated. Many areas are inaccessible by land, but luckily it’s sunny and the helicopters can pick up the survivors. As of yesterday, the number of dead was around 230,” says Lella, Medical Coordinator at our Anabah Surgical and Medical Center in the Panjsher Valley.
“Of the people caught up in the avalanche and brought here to the hospital, three are in danger of having to undergo amputation of a lower limb due to frostbite.”
