A young girl watches from the Dikhil Hospital entrance gate as seven cisterns are delivered to the hospital on March 22. The seven cisterns, purchased by the 402nd Civil Affairs Battalion, will benefit roughly 88,000 people in the region who use the Dikhil Hospital and its outlying village clinics. The increased water storage capacity will help medical staff improve hygiene and reduce infections and maternal death rates.
