Outreach to Kabul orphanage by American troops
'The kids were extremely excited. Watching their faces light up as we were handing out items was absolutely...touching, he says. 'It was a little bittersweet interacting with the children reminded me strongly of how much I miss my own children.'

It is a beautiful Fall day as we begin our mission to deliver much needed supplies to a local orphanage in the city of Kabul. The mission being completely voluntary is headed up by a team that really believes in what they are doing. Thanks to donations from family members back in the states we were able to collect over 800 pounds of clothes, school supplies, and health and wellness items. The children and staff of the orphanage are very excited to receive us. We handed out toys and candy to individual children; it is incredible to see the effect that a simple piece of candy has on these children who have so little.
