The Afghanistan Red Crescent Society (ARCS) revealed that India will help cure 4,000 Afghan children having heart disease. India will spend over $3,000 on each heart patient in the coming five years, and if the expenses exceed $4,000, the remaining balance would be paid by the ARCS.

ARCS said, "Most of the children have a 'hole in heart' condition, which in medical terms is called Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD). India has always assisted ARCS."

Indian Ambassador Amar Sinha said, "It was a pleasure for me to see the Indian government supporting Afghanistan. India will also train Afghan cardiologists to handle simple cardiac cases in Afghanistan."
