Father: Surgeons made errors in treating child


A father complained that the doctors at the French Medical Institute for Mothers and Children (FMIC) made mistakes during surgery on his infant daughter.

Gul Agha, a displaced person, fled the previous conflict in the northern province of Kunduz and came to Kabul. He lives in a camp full of displaced people in the Bagrami district of Kabul.

“This is my daughter. She had a hole in her heart. I took her to the FMIC hospital. She went through a surgery. They took 150,000 Afs for the operation. Her chest structure is still not fixed. They (doctors) asked me for another 60,000 Afs,” he said. “Where can I find this money? I have 100,000 Afs income.”

But a head official within the FMIC said that the side effects were a common issue in heart operations. —Agencies
