Wisconsin Branch ships aid to Central Asia

Last June 8, the Wisconsin Branch volunteers loaded a shipment for Dushanbe, Tajikistan. If you are thinking, ”Where is that?” It is a mountainous, landlocked country in Central Asia that is bordered by Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and China. OGT’s recipient Mayak recently unloaded the shipment containing 63,360 Mercy Meals, quilts, bedding, clothing, coats, shoes, hats, gloves, scarves, commodes, crutches/canes, walkers, and wheelchairs. The food and relief supplies were distributed to families in need and 5 different organizations.
