General information about the Chak Hospital

The Chak-Hospital, three and a half hours south-west of Kabul, which has been operating in the Taliban area saves lives, treats the sick, trains medical professionals and creates and secures jobs.

The hospital, financed by private donations, has been set up by Karla Schefter in 1991 and is run by the non-profit association C.P.H.A. Committee for the Promotion of Medical and Humanitarian Aid in Afghanistan. Only Afghan employees work in the hospital.
Since the refugee influx in Europe since the end of 2015, the necessary donation sum for the operating costs in the amount of 800,000, - € annually no longer accumulate. When the last provisions are exhausted, sick patients have to be turned down or the first doctors have to be discharged.
Every year, up to 90,000 patients are treated. The hospital employs 78 Afghan doctors and professionals (women and men), who provide livelihoods for 78 clans (up to 38 people each), thereby concretely eliminating the causes of flight for their children. The children of the employees have their own schoold an are beeing taught well.
Reviews from experts of the hospital:

Ulrich Tilgner (german TV reporter): "It's the only project that really works and works sustainably."
German Ambassador: "She (Karla Schefter) has done more than a battalion of soldiers can do it."

With financial support, you can ensure medical care. Afghanistan's humanitarian aid has now fallen by the wayside due to the lack of security and structural deficiencies.
We look forward to joining and securing a sustainable project developed in wartime as a showpiece for other activities in extremely difficult situations. "A path leads over every mountain." (afgh. proverb)
