CARE assists children in the provinces.

Location unknown, 1962

U.S. philanthropic organizations played an important role in developing Afghanistan’s infrastructure and providing for the needy. This CARE program supplied fresh milk and bread to over 150,000 school children in rural areas of the country. Among its many activities, CARE later joined with MEDICO to place American
medical staff in Afghan hospitals.
