Kabul/Prague, Aug 25 (CTK) – Nazira, a three-year-old Afghan girl, is among several dozens of ill or injured local people, both kids and adults, who have been helped by the Czech soldiers deployed in the country’s Parvan province in the past four months, Jan Sulc, from the Czech General Staff, has told CTK.

Colonel Sulc said Nazira suffers from a serious kidney defect. Until recently, she received treatment in a hospital in Pakistan, which, however, has returned her home because her father was unable to cover the costs of the treatment.

After examining Nazira and studying her medical file, the doctor of the Czech military unit found out that she suffers from the nephrotic syndrome that reduces her immunity, and needs medicines as well as a supportive non-pharmaceutical care resting in special nourishment rich in proteins.

The Czech soldiers organised a campaign to collect money for Nazira’s treatment. They gathered 721 dollars for which the necessary meat and dairy products have been bought for Nazira’s optimal supportive therapy.

Although her disease is serious, the small patient has made a progress. Her health condition has improved and she has become more lively and merry, the doctor told CTK.
