Gurgaon Hospital Brings Smile on Afghan’s Father Face
Gurgaon hospital brings smile on Afghan’s father’s face
It was a devastating news for Tawos Zam Zam living in a small province of Khost in Afghanistan when doctors diagnosed a hole in the heart of his one-year old son Atal Zam Zam. He knew Afghanistan does not have adequate facilities and specialists to treat his son and he cannot afford enough to get the treatment in another country as the doctor suggested India for his son’s heart surgery.
Sitting in Amiri Medical Complex (AMC), Kabul’s only cardiac hospital situated in the premises of the Afghan Red Crescent, Tawos had almost lost hope of giving the best treatment to his son. Tawas recalls at this time Afghan Red Crescent Society (ARCS) came as a new hope in his son’s life. The organization in Afghanistan is working towards providing treatment in India to those suffering from heart diseases.
Today Tawos is a happy man. Atal has been successfully operated for the heart hole surgery in Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon in India and now Atal is doing very well, Tawos shares with a smile.
A principal of a school in Khost, going back home Tawos wants to spread awareness in his province about the advanced treatment available in India and help those in need.
Afghanistan has a serious concern of increasing number of children suffering from Septal Defects with thousands of patients awaiting treatment. Every year India witness large number patients from Afghanistan but lack of right information and apprehension about coming to a new country either delays or prevents them from the right treatment.
