AFGHANISTAN, improvements are on the way...
I remember the night when I arrived, to the Afghan border, it was in the '72.
Two rocks an a log, this was the marking-border.
A hot night, full of magic and mystery in the air, our passports were checked, under the lights of some candles...
An entire generation fell in love with this country.
We saw what we wanted to see.
In this torn- apart-land, finally, are arriving, the very first signs of marked improvement in the health sector, it is a beginning to life again, for this country.
Independent evaluation suggest 40,000 fewer infants deaths per year, compared to 5 years ago.

Infant mortality rates in Afghanistan ,declined from an estimated 165 per 1,000 live births in 2001 to about 135 per 1,000 in 2006, according preliminary findings of Johns Hopkins University household survey

An overall improvement of 25 per cent is indicated from 2004.
Dr.Fatimi, Public Health Minister of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan , quotes:'There are clear signs of health sector recovery throughout the country!”
Afghanistan is ruled by the sign Capricorn, you can see it in the proud behaviour of the people.
This is the sign of “the goat”, symbol of the animal which is able to climb mountains.
Capricorn has to do with directed will , dealing with political and economic power.
Pluto, the planet of deep reforms and drastic changes, will enter in the year 2008 in this sign, marking strongly this country, for more than a decade.
In spite of all the difficulties , and the domestic struggles, there are already, signs of rebirth; we all hope, that the education of children and women, will be soon, a further step , to take.
Rise up with your beauty, Afghanistan, in peace and love, in the world's geography!
