Insights into the French Medical Institute for Children in Kabul: A Dinner and Discussion [fr]
The Aga Khan Council for the Southern United States, in partnership with the Consulate General of France in Atlanta, will host a Dinner and Discussion with Lee Hilling, author of A Place of MIRACLES on October 5.
The French Medical Institute for Children (FMIC) is one of Afghanistan’s most remarkable success stories, arising in the midst of the war-torn country of Afghanistan. Created by two private, non-governmental organizations – the Aga Khan Development Network and the France-based humanitarian entity, La Chaine de l’Espoir, and two governments – the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and France, this ultramodern hospital has saved the lives of more than 1600 children by giving them access to medical and surgical care according to the highest international standards.
During this event, FMIC Chairman and author Lee Hilling will share about his experiences that inspired his book.
Lee Hilling has been Chairman of FMIC’s governing body since 2006 and has travelled to Afghanistan nearly sixty times. He has held board and senior executive management positions at academic health centers in the United States, Pakistan, and East Africa. A native of Ohio, he now lives with his wife in Bethesda, Maryland.
