Afghanistan: My journey with MSF

It's midnight. Summer 2008 in the Afghan city of Lashkar Gah and Rahmatullah Ali Jani is woken by a knock at the door. His uncle needs him to help a woman in labour.

Soon, Ali's journey to work for Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and a passion for healthcare will begin.

In this video, taken from an MSF Story-telling event in Autumn, he shares his inspiring start.

MSF in Afghanistan

Decades of conflict have ruined Afghanistan’s economy and infrastructure, and many people rely on humanitarian aid.

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) provides emergency, paediatric and maternal healthcare in Afghanistan, which has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world.
