U.S. Army Sergeant Sgt. David Wilson (right), 402nd Civil Affairs Battalion, assists local Dikhil residents in unloading one of seven cisterns delivered to the Dikhil Hospital on March 22. The cisterns, purchased by the 402nd CAB, 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.
