At Ramstein Air Base in Germany, more than 20,000 Afghans are being sheltered for up to two weeks before authorities will send them to supportive communities and countries. Latter-day Saint Charities is distributing blankets, food, baby items (diapers, formula, toys), as well as personal hygiene materials, underwear, shoes and jackets.

Thousands of these refugees will go to Fort McCoy in Wisconsin, USA. From there, they will be sent to live in communities throughout the United States. Latter-day Saint Charities is working with the United States military to provide food, clothing, shoes, diapers and baby formula to the 10,000 refugees expected at Fort McCoy.

As reported earlier in August, Latter-day Saint Charities is giving personal hygiene items, underwear, sandals and toys to refugees at an air base in Qatar. Local Latter-day Saints are distributing these items to families.
