Canada lends a hand to hospital project in Afghanistan
The Bamyan Provincial Hospital project in Afghanistan is entering the next stage after holding a foundation-laying ceremony last Thursday.
The hospital is part of the Canadian government’s continued efforts to provide better maternal, newborn and child healthcare in Afghanistan.
“We are pleased that we have reached this milestone and look forward to seeing the new hospital up and running, providing the best possible quality care for mothers and children of Bamyan Province,” said Minister of International Cooperation Julian Fantino.
The project, which is in collaboration with the Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC), will create new maternal and childcare centres in the hospital as well as training midwives and nurses, establishing a nutrition program and promoting healthy living.
The Government of Canada and the AKFC have been partners for almost 30 years, working on number of international development projects in Afghanistan.
