EMERGENCY runs the only high-standard, free-of-charge surgical center in Kabul for victims of war. Among the many services provided at this hospital are the life-saving surgeries that save the limbs of children injured by war. 

An arm or leg can be saved through a surgery that involves inserting a special pin ($85) that is held in place by screws ($15) that stabilize the limb so it doesn't have to be amputated. An arm or leg can be saved for $100.

For the cost of ONE day of war in Afghanistan, EMERGENCY can build TEN high-standard, free-of-charge hospitals and cover all expenses for THREE years.
