(IRIN) – An Afghan father recently described how his 15-year-old son lost both feet after stepping on a mine. He couldn’t get proper care in Kunduz City – the only trauma centre there had been destroyed – so he took a taxi more than 200 miles to Kabul. By the time his son received treatment, it was too late. “Both of his legs had to be cut off from just below the waist, because the bones were ruined and he had a serious infection,” the boy’s father said. “For one week, he was ok, but then, from the infection, he went into a coma. Ten days later, he died in the hospital.”
