KABUL, April 18, 2018 -- China will provide free medical treatment for 25 Afghan children with congenital heart diseases, a Chinese Red Cross foreign aid medical team announced here Tuesday.
 
"As soon as our team arrived in Kabul, we carried out screening for 150 children with congenital heart disease (CHD) to register eligible kids for providing them with free medical treatment in China," said Sun Shuopeng, head of the team.
 
The 25 kids, including eight girls and 17 boys, are the second group of children to be sent to China for treatment.
 
Under a program launched last year, China will provide free medical treatment for around 100 children suffering from CHD at the first phase in Afghanistan, according to Sun.
