AFGHANISTAN

Afghanistan is a country of 29 million people with over 30 years of continuous war and devastation. Of those 29 million, there are only 2 self-trained plastic surgeons who are practicing in the capital of Kabul. Mission: Restore traveled to Kabul in November, 2011 to establish a partnership with Cure International to assist women and children who desperately need our help.

As escalating violence has made it difficult for Mission: Restore surgeons to return to Afghanistan, Mission: Restore has helped treat patients from Afghanistan in the United States, including Marzieh, the six-year old child who was shot in the face by the Taliban after her father and brother were killed.
