Peshawar-Kai makes video to introduce activities.
Japanese nongovernmental organization (NGO) Peshawar-Kai has made a video to introduce its activities along the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan, which include medical services, food delivery and well digging.
The Fukuoka-based NGO was established in 1984 to support Tetsu Nakamura, a 55-year-old doctor who has treated leprosy patients in the two South Asian countries. It currently runs 11 medical facilities in the area.
In 2000, the NGO launched well digging to help combat a drought in the area and it is now engaged in delivering food in Afghanistan, which has faced military strikes by U.S.-led forces in retaliation for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the United States.
The 14-minute VHS video can be ordered via fax at 092-731-2373, the NGO said. It costs 1,500 yen, including tax and postage.
