NATO pledges $2.7mn for reconstruction of military hospital in Kabul

The NATO-led Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan had pledged USD 2.7mn for the reconstruction of the Kabul military hospital which recently witnessed a six-hour siege that left at least 50 people dead.

According to the Resolute Mission spokesperson Capt Bill Salvin, USD 1.7mn of the budget is allocated for new medical equipment and USD 1mn for new furnishings.

The repair work of Sardar Mohammad Daud Khan has been completed by 90% after the attack.

Capt Salvin said the alliance is paying for restoration of 50 rooms, two X-ray machines, seven monitors with server, new imaging units and lab equipment.

He further added that the budget also covers the costs for overhauling the generators and repairing elevators.

The upgrading of the two operating units, improvement of ICU monitoring and provision of high-tech equipment will further improve the hospital’s services.
