Public Protection Force assists medical outreach in Wardak

KABUL, April 19 (USFA)

Members of the Afghan Public Protection Force and Coalition Forces conducted a medical and dental outreach program at a clinic in the Jalrez District, Wardak Province, April 16.

The security provided by the APPF enabled more than 350 villagers to be evaluated and treated at the outreach program. The APPF's positive interaction with villagers helped sixty young girls receive education on dental hygiene, and facilitated the discussion of key health issues in the community to narrow the focus of care for future medical outreaches in the area. The community security element also handed out dental hygiene supplies to villagers.

“Today marks the fist medical and dental outreach program the Afghan Public Protection Force has participated in. The villagers were able to see firsthand the benefits of having these brave men in their community,” said a Coalition spokesperson.
