Working in partnership with International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) teams from Bulgaria and Australia, seven large boxes of donations were collected and distributed in the humanitarian assistance effort.
“In addition to many years of conflict, Afghan citizens have been affected by natural disasters including flooding and earthquakes,” said Clara Butterfield, DynCorp International project controls specialist and initiator of Operation Donation. “We were compelled to find a way to help and got a great turnout from our team members.”
DI team members will continue to collect and donate supplies such as blankets, especially as winter approaches in Afghanistan.
Operation Donation was coordinated and executed by DI team members working in support of the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) in Afghanistan.
A Coordinated Team Effort
DI team members collected donations at their Billeting office. They were then inventoried and packed for distribution. Working with Bulgarian and Australian personnel, the items were stored and transported by the Afghan National Army to local communities in need.
