“In response to the rising level of violence, Emergency is opening new clinics and expanding its existing hospitals in Afghanistan, focusing in and around Kabul and in the southern province of Helmand, where the fighting has been especially intense. ‘2014 has been the worst year so far, but that’s what we were expecting,’ said Luca Radaelli, who oversees Emergency’s operations in Afghanistan.”
