Kabul: FMIC orthopaedic surgeons conducted a health awareness session for 55 parents of disabled and vulnerable children under the support of the Enabled Children Initiative Center (ECI) in Afghanistan. The participants of the session learned about symptoms, risk factors, and treatment of limb impairment and developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH).
Both limb impairment and DDH can cause disability among children and jeopardize their future. In Afghanistan, children with DDH and limb impairment are treatable through specific surgeries and care if the families act timely for early detection and treatment.
Enabled Children Initiative is an independent charity organization based in the U.S.A and supports disabled and vulnerable children in different countries including Afghanistan. It provides residential, educational, and income generation support for families. FMIC was invited by the ECI to provide an educational session to the parents about the mentioned diseases.
Health awareness session is one of the FMIC educational programmes to promote cultural wellbeing and health among different groups of the society like children, women and adults.
