Afghan Medical Aid

An Afghan physician based in Paris is taking new measures to get sick Afghan children the medical attention they need. She's flying many of them to Paris, where doctors perform a range of operations unimaginable in Kabul's basic medical facilities. Medical teams in Paris are struggling to raise money to improve medicine in Afghanistan, and hope the children will bring a message of modernity back to their villages.
