Church Aid's Afghan Refugees
In a coordinated effort among The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and four International relief agencies, nearly 400,000 pounds of humanitarian aid will be sent to at least three Asian countries in an effort to aid thousands of fleeing Afghan refugees from their war-torn country. In the last week, 19 semi-truckloads of clothing, wool blankets, quilts, newborn and family hygiene kits along with plastic sheeting for shelter and groundcover and water have been sent from Salt Lake City. The supplies will be distributed to camps in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Pakistan and should reach the refugee camps within four to six weeks according to Garry Flake, director of Church humanitarian services.
