“We are pleased to announce the final delivery of the last Disaster Relief Systems. Members of our defense team and Special Operations Command Pacific’s Civil Affairs Team delivered the system in Chame, Manang,” writes U.S. Embassy, Nepal in its face book site.
“During times of crisis, the Disaster Relief System will provide access to shelter, heat, hygiene items, sleeping space, and clean drinking water for up to 200 citizens in the affected area. This final delivery completes a two-year, $1.3 million project to alleviate human suffering in times of disaster.
