The Afghan Red Crescent Society (ARCS) is sending as many as 79 ailing Afghan children to Germany for treatment.
The children were diagnosed by a team of doctors by the Peace Village International who recommended sending the children to Germany.
The travel arrangement for the ailing children is in accordance with an agreement between the Peace Village International and the ARCS signed in 1989.
According to Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN), each child cost 6,000 Euros and more than 4,000 children had so far been sent by the ARCS to Germany.
Peace Village International was established on July 6th, 1967 as a citizen’s initiative to help children in areas of war and crisis.
