Part One: Afghan Kids Receiving Medical Treatment in Charlotte We'll meet a 17 year old Afghan youth who is visiting the Charlotte area to receive medical treatment along with several other Afghan young people. We'll talk with Zaman Abdul Rashid, and two members of the organization who made his trip possible about some of the typical hardships that Afghan youths face medically and in terms of education. We'll also hear about the mutual education and understanding about Afghan and American culture that has happened as a result of bringing children here for medical treatment.
