GHAZNI PROVINCE, Afghanistan - Ghazni Provincial Reconstruction Team
members helped the Afghan National Police deliver medical supplies to
the Moqur District Center and spoke to clinic doctors about their needs
during a site visit Sept. 10.


Three pallets of medical supplies ranging from bandages to surgical
equipment, a gift from the Afghan government and the PRT, were delivered
to the clinic to provide aid to the local villagers.

"This was our first time visiting this clinic and speaking to their
doctor," said U.S. Army Sgt. Dennis Magnasco, a medic assigned to the
Ghazni Provincial Reconstruction Team, Task Force White Eagle and Boston
native.  "We were able to find out how well the clinic is operating, how
it met the needs of the people, and what medical issues were affecting
the people."

The clinic's doctor Khial Mohammed Naiz was able to answer questions for
the PRT and thank them for their assistance. 

"Thank you, we are a poor country and these medical supplies will help
our people", said Dr. Khial Mohammed Naiz.

The PRT also gained vast knowledge about an area previously not visited.

"This engagement was very important and went well," said Magnasco. "They
were happy to receive the medical supplies and we were able to gain a
lot of information to provide support to their people."
