About La Chaîne de l’Espoir:

Background and Introduction

La Chaine de l’Espoir is a French non-for-profit association founded in 1994. This international aid association is independent and impartial. It works in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. LCDE was formed by a network of medical and surgical expertise. As a key player in the health sector, it is committed to providing medical treatment and school education to children who need it most. It also supports the health systems in the countries in which it intervenes, by building and equipping structures adapted to the local context. LCDE is active in Afghanistan since 2003. Its objective is to foster access to health care for the most vulnerable populations of women and children. In 2005, La Chaine de l’Espoir built and equipped the French Medical Institute for Children and Women in Kabul (FMIC). The Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) is responsible for the general operations of the hospital. La Chaine de l’Espoir brings its medical expertise and supports the care of disadvantaged people via the “Patient Welfare” programme, as well as the Women and Children’s House (WCH) project. The WCH is a structure providing free access to the quality surgical care offered by the FMIC for the most disadvantaged women and children from the 34 provinces of Afghanistan. It is an innovative approach that La Chaîne de l’Espoir initiated in 2008. The objective of the project is to meet the needs for specialized healthcare for the most vulnerable part of the Afghan population, coming from remote areas with no specialized healthcare available and that can’t afford surgical treatment. For more than 10 years, children have been treated through the WCH, regardless of their ethnic, social or geographical origin. In addition to give access to medical care, the WCH provides them with accommodation, food, transportation reimbursement, hygiene kits and social care. In 2018, the project has expanded access to healthcare services for women in need of gynecological care.
