Projects

Afghanistan

EMERGENCY has treated over 7 million patients in Afghanistan since 1999.

For over 40 years, Afghanistan has been devastated by a conflict that has killed over one million people, left hundreds of thousands wounded and disabled, and created over four million refugees. The war that began in October 2001 continues to injure, kill and destroy. The legacy of previous wars continue to remain: anti-personnel mines and unexploded ordinance continue to wound children and adults, overwhelmingly civilians.

  • 45 First Aid Posts and Healthcare Centres
  • Surgical Centre for War Victims, KABUL

Uganda

The Paediatric Surgery Centre will be EMERGENCY’s first project in Uganda.

This new project typifies the organisation’s humanitarian ethos: a vision of mutual respect which recognises the equal rights and dignity of every human being.
In the words of Renzo Piano, the renowned architect with whom we collaborated to design and build the new centre in Entebbe, “the strength of EMERGENCY is based on its focus on beauty as well as on the practice of medical excellence; the sense of justice, the rejection of war, and the pursuit of harmony.” These fundamental principles were embodied in the design for the new Paediatric Centre in Entebbe. It is to be, as envisioned by founder Gino Strada, “a place full of joy and love.”

OUR PROJECT IN THE COUNTRY
