KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Sixty-eight children returned home after being treated in Germany with the cooperation of Afghan Red Crescent Societyinfo-icon (ARCS) and German Peace Village, officials said on Sunday.

From different provinces of the country, the children were treated for burn injuries and broken bones. Families received them at the ARCS office in the Pul-i-Artal area of Kabul.

Children who cannot be provided medical care in Afghanistaninfo-icon are sent to Germany, ARCS official Enayatullah Siddiqui told Pajhwok Afghan News. Their travel cost was paid by ARCS and German Peace Village.

Every six months, the charity takes disabled Afghan children to Germany for treatment. On Feb. 15, a group of 59 was flown to that country. More than 6,000 disabled children have been treated so far in Germany by the Peace Village.

Last year, more than 190 Afghan children underwent free surgery in hospitals across that country. War wounds, bone infections and deformities cannot be treated properly in Afghanistan.

At the village, children spend their time with rehabilitation training, German lessons, sewing and cooking.
