textKumsangir, Tajikistan – At 12 years old, Abdumuminov Umurzoq was admitted to the hospital with colic, fever, nausea and vomiting. He underwent emergency surgery and was given drugs provided through the U.S. program Operation Provide Hope as a part of his treatment. Before his second surgery, Abdumuminov was again treated with donated drugs from the OPH program. His father, who is stayed in the hospital with him, said he is grateful for the donated medicines. "Being a collective farm worker I cannot afford to buy such good, effective and expensive medicine which saved the life of my son."

The Department of State humanitarian program Operation Provide Hope (OPH) has been providing assistance to the Former Soviet Union since 1992. This assistance often comes in the form of donated medicines and medical supplies. Sometimes, these donations can mean the difference between life and death.  More

In the winter of 2008, the United States provided nearly $1 million in emergency humanitarian aid, in addition to more than $1 million in humanitarian daily rations, to help Tajikistanis survive the extreme temperatures and widespread power cuts that left many people in the dark, with limited food supplies.
