Winter humanitarian missions help many

BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan - Humanitarian missions taking place throughout Afghanistan are focused on helping villagers, teachers and children make it through the winter more comfortably.

ISAF soldiers who are part of Bravo Battery, 4th Battalion, 25th Field Artillery Regiment recently conducted a mission for the teachers of Kor Baugh in Nagalam district, Khost province.

The mission was scheduled after the Kor Baugh teachers requested assistance in preparing for their new school season. The regiment distributed several blankets, sweaters and coats, plus two teacher starter kits for the new school year. The ISAF soldiers asked the Government of Afghanistan for additional supplies and help with missions like this one in the future. 

In Barkanday village, also located in Khowst Province, another group of ISAF soldiers from Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry distributed a variety of items to the local people. Donations included rice, beans, flour, sugar, oil, coats, sweaters, gloves, coal, stoves, and tarps.

Finally, a civil assistance mission conducted in Narang district, Kunar province provided 28 bundles of coats, toboggans and children’s headgear to needy families, as well as bags of rice and beans.
