General

  • Mission:
  • American Medical Overseas Relief was founded with the mission of providing healthcare for those who can't provide for themselves. Since its beginning, AMOR has stuck to its guiding principal and has built and is funding and operating a 100 bed hospital in the Southwest region of Kabul, Afghanistan where it is seeing over 3,000 patients a month. The hospital is located in one of the poorest and undeserved areas of the population in Kabul that is filled with extreme poverty and many refugees seeking care. We continue to provide quality affordable health care to the individual no matter what they are able to pay. AMOR will turn no one away. As you can imagine, the challenges we face in Afghanistan are great. The World Health Organization has reported some of the worst statistics ever recorded. For example, as high as 40% of Afghan children die before age 5, and 1 in 4 women dying of complications related to pregnancy! Amazingly, most of the conditions causing death are preventable and treatable with very basic and relatively inexpensive medical care.he hospital is located in one of the poorest and undeserved areas of the population in Kabul that is filled with extreme poverty and many refugees seeking care. We continue to provide quality affordable health care to the individual no matter what they are able to pay. AMOR will turn no one away.

  • History:
  • American Medical Overseas Relief grew out of the vision of one family in Fresno, California who saw the great need for quality medical care for women and children in Afghanistan and was committee to do something about it. In 2004 construction began on Afshar Hospital and in April of 2009 the doors of the hospital opened. During the first month of its opening, Afshar Hospital saw nearly 800 patients, and now, almost two years later the hospital is seeing over 3,000 patients a month.
