Charitable Organizations Provide Free Eye Treatments in Afghanistan

Two charitable organizations, in collaboration with the Afghan Red Crescent Society, have provided treatment for nearly 4,000 patients suffering from eye ailments in the country.

The assistant spokesperson for the Afghan Red Crescent Society said these patients are treated free of charge, with the treatment cost estimated at $100,000 dollars.

Fazalhaq Maqsoodyar, assistant spokesperson of the Afghan Red Crescent Society, said: "In five days in the Kabul center, nearly 4,000 people with eye diseases will be examined, and of course, 400 surgical operations will be performed."

Siddiqa, who has had vision problems for three years, is pleased with the start of the free treatment process for patients.

She said that significant economic challenges have prevented her from addressing her eye condition until now.

"It has been three years that I couldn't afford the treatment. My eyes couldn't see, and after three years, I came for this treatment because I didn't have the money to pay for it," Siddiqa told TOLOnews.

An official of the medical team, who, along with Pakistani doctors, has come to Afghanistan from the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center, said they are striving to establish a well-equipped hospital in Afghanistan.

An official of the medical team from Al-basar International Foundation (BIF), said: "This is the fourth day and the surgeries we have started today and these four days of screening we have seen more than 2,500 patients have been seen, and around 200 patients have been registered for surgery.”

According to the Afghan Red Crescent Society, this process will also begin in other provinces also.
