About 2/2: … GAAC evolved through German Federal Armed Forces physician Dr. Eroes and his great expertise, acquired in over twenty years of related work. During these years, he worked extensively with UN and international relief organizations to provide humanitarian and disaster relief within the area as well as in India, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Iran, Albania, Rwanda and East-Timor. Dr Eroes worked in and for Afghanistan since 1985.

In 1987, Dr. Eroes took unpaid leave from the German Federal Armed Forces for three years and lived with his wife and their four sons in Peshawar, the Pakistan border town to Afghanistan.

Dr. Eroes worked as a physician in refugee camps and in Afghan war outposts. More than 180.000 sick or wounded people per year received treatment. They received medical care under very difficult and dangerous circumstances.

His wife, Annette Eroes established and directed the “European school of Peshawar”. In this “exotic” school (DIE WELT, 1988), children from 11 countries were educated by 6 teachers from 5 countries. Among the students were refugee children from Afghanistan, children of coworkers of relief organizations from Germany, Switzerland, France, Norway, Italy, the USA, and Japan. In 1998, this school became the “PEACE SCHOOL PESHAWAR”. This school has become one of the best schools for Afghan refugee girls.

The connection to Afghanistan expanded dramatically in the fall of 2001.

GERMAN AID for AFGHAN CHILDREN concentrates the efforts to the mountain region of Tora Bora. Several schools have already been built, among them the largest school in the country, in Jalalabad.
