Feb 16, 2012 - 17:24

KABUL (PAN): Fifty-five Afghan children, who underwent medical treatment in Germany, returned on home on Thursday. Another 67 ailing children are to be flown to that country on Saturday.  

Afghan Red Crescent (ARCS) Society spokesman, Mohammad Salim Wardak, told Pajhwok Afghan News the German Peace Village had been treating the children with burn injuries and bone diseases since its establishment in 1989.

Among the 63 children sent to Germany for treatment since March 20, 13 had come back after recovery and the remaining 55 returned today, said the GPV spokesman, Walid Akbar Sarwari.  

Passports for the children were provided by the ARCS and their treatment funded by GPV.  The GPV has a 19 years history of cooperation with ARCS in facilitating the treatment of children below 11.
