At least 54 children affected by bone disease and burns will be taken to Germany for medical treatment by the Afghan Red Crescent Society (ARCS), the officials of the organization said.
The acting head of ARCS, Matiullah Khalis, said that the process of sending children who are suffering from various diseases will begin to Qatar and India.
"The number of children who will leave today is 54. The previous batch was 68 children," he said.
Mohammad Naeem has brought his child from the western province of Badghis to ARCS.
Naeem said that he took his daughter to many doctors but was not treated.
"I hope my child is taken abroad and treated and comes back. I have a poor economic condition," he said.
The children are being treated with the help of Germany’s Peace Village International.
“We see the need. You are right. We should take more children. We could take more children to Germany but our problem is that the clinic in Germany does not have the capacity nor the money to treat a lot of children. That is our shame. We see that a lot of children at the moment have big problems,” said Claudia Peppmuller, head of communication of Germany’s Peace Village International.
ARCS said that Germany’s Peace Village International supported the treatment of 4,700 children.
