La Chronique N°135 – September 2020

40 Years of Help in Afghanistan: discover in La Chronique of September 2020, our report retracing 40 years of humanitarian intervention by Première Urgence Internationale teams in Afghanistan, through health, nutrition and psychological support programmes, to help Afghan civilians in the face of this complex humanitarian crisis. “The commitment and dedication of our Afghan and expatriate staff have provided valuable expertise over the years in implementing the association’s mandate in geographical areas where there are no health facilities” explains Philippe Jouannet, Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors at Première Urgence Internationale.

In 1983, the French doctor Philippe Augoyard left on a humanitarian mission in Afghanistan with Première Urgence Internationale (Aide Médicale Internationale at the time). He was taken prisoner by the Soviet-Afghan army and remained hostage for five months in a prison in Kabul. His testimony sheds light on an era full of risks, at the very heart of the Afghan conflict.
