PEARL is a registered charity providing urgent medical care to individuals in Afghanistan, which has the highest maternal/infant mortality rate in the world. PEARL’s aim is to change this statistic by establishing medical facilities like Falah Hospital, built in northern Afghanistan in 2009. Since it was built, this facility has served over 250,000 patients in the areas of gynaecology/obstetrics, pediatrics, internal medicine, vaccination, and outpatient care.
This year, Falah will open a new 5,400 sq ft building to serve more people with higher quality care.
How we helped
Lush's contribution has helped significantly with maintaining and upgrading our hospital’s medical equipment, which is one of the most important requirements in having an effective medical facility. Funding through Lush has also enabled us to expand from being a small-scale healthcare project to become a permanent and modern hospital where many departments can operate under the same roof.
