Posted by Linda Barnes in Afghanistan, Midwifery.

I write comfortably from Durango, CO; I am preparing to return to Kabul next week for six weeks. News of Avian Flu is a little scary; the security situation continues to teeter on some kind of edge.

I am gratified that midwife colleagues have sent their $25 annual membership/sponsorship for the Afghanistan Midwives Association (AMA); these fees will be a great boon to this nascent professional group in Afghanistan. Just before I left Kabul the AMA was officially welcomed as a full member of the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM). Midwives have a long and arduous path ahead in Afghanistan. Those of you who are midwives can imagine the challenges these midwives face in Afghanistan where women feel safest looking through the grill of a burka.

Hi, Linda.

I am Ahmad Shuja, an Afghan (of Hazara ethnicity) living in Quetta, Pakistan. I came across to your wonderful weblog from Technorati. I read the contents and found them very interesting. Thank you for the beautiful weblog.

I had a trip to Afghanistan in December 2005 with Copley News Service journalist, Marcus Stern. We covered various aspects of the lives of the ordinary Afghans, including the life of the people in Kabul. The stories are on my weblog.

Because of the relevance of the contents, I want to add a link to your weblog on mine; for this, I want your approval.

Thank you for your attention.
