Description : She has been in the hospital for eight months and is now walking on crutches. Doctors expect that she will be discharged in two weeks time.

The ICRC supports the hospital by paying fees for patients who are injured within the context of violence in the province. In addition to direct support to the hospital, the ICRC gives a certain amount of money per day to patients and carers, to enable them to buy food, soap and other necessary items during their stay in the hospital.
