Description : Afghans who had been wounded in their country have arrived in Peshawar, Pakistan. Many of them were transferred for long hours or even several days on horseback until they were finally taken in charge. However, the hospital has had to admit twice as many patients than it could find beds for. To overcome this problem, a new field hospital is being built, in order to gradually reduce the heavy workload in the first hospital for Afghan war wounded.
