MSF activity at the Afghanistan earthquake
Following the earthquakes that struck the Nahrin town and region on March 25 and 26, an MSF team of six medical staff were active in the area immediately. In two days over 200 people were cared for by the organisation and, with the medical injuries treated, focus is moving towards rehabilitation.
Water, food and shelter remain a priority here and transport is restricted. There are only three key roads in the area and two were damaged in the earthquake. In addition, Nahrin is on what was the front line of the conflict between the Taleban and Northern province so entry to the region is hampered by land mines that remain there.
