On Jan 23, 2001 two mobile health care teams of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA) visited Akora refugee camp where thousands of new arrived Afghan refugees are living without basic living facilities. The teams checked the ill children and women and distributed medicines among them.
The teams comprised of two lady doctors and some of RAWA activists are visiting different camps where new arrived refugees are living in tragic situation.
Hundreds of women rushed to the medical camp and the teams checked more than 500 patients and distributed medicine among them. There are thousands of refugees that need medical care.
Some refugee women talking to RAWA activists said that they prefer to be killed inside Afghanistan than to live in such horrible situation and witness the gradual death of their children.

Due to fighting we immigrated to Pakistan with his 4 orphans and since 7 months we are here. We had normal life in Kundoz but everything went with the wind. My heart is broken experiencing and watching so much miseries."
