Afghanistan: Hungarian forces help more than 200 local Afghan families

There is a tendency to forget that many nations are contributing to the current operation in Afghanistan. It is easy to focus on the "main players" while forgetting those who do not receive global media coverage. Hence this little piece

Hungarian forces distributed warm clothes and winter supplies to more than 200 local Afghan families in Baghlan Province.

The Afghan Ministry of Women's Affairs selected single mothers and widows for the delivery given out at the Afghan National Army base near the edge of the town.

The International Security Assistance Force and international aid organizations have provided aid to thousands of Afghans in recent weeks to help during the harsh winter months.
