Fresno Nonprofit Aids Afghan Women, Infants with New Hospital
Right now in Afghanistan, infants who otherwise might die are getting a new chance at life at Ashfar Hospital in Kabul. The 24 bed neonatal department is the latest addition to the facility that first opened in 2009. It was constructed by a Fresno based non-profit organization called AMOR, which stands for American Medical Overseas Relief. The NGO also runs the facility, which provides health care services for thousands of Afghans. Davena Witcher, AMOR's development director joined us on Valley Edition to talk about the work that's on-going at bringing western medicine to Afghan citizens.
