With intense fighting in Afghanistan, many have sought refuge in Herat, where families are living in precarious conditions in camps around the city.
Médecins Sans Frontières is providing emergency treatment for malnutrition, and specialised care for mothers and newborns.
MSF also operates a Therapeutic Feeding Centre at Herat Regional Hospital, for hungry children in the most urgent need.
MSF works on both sides of the frontline, reaching out to displaced and poor communities, to ensure everyone knows they are there to provide free, expert, independent and impartial medical care.
