We are currently making arrangements for a flight to Uzbekistan
(preferably Termez) as soon as possible. This is likely to be
an Ilyushin-76 aeroplane carrying a six-person Field Support Team
consisting of vehicles, communications, office equipment and accommodation.
This will enable a team to establish a programme quickly on the
ground, whether in Uzbekistan or Afghanistan, by giving an operational
platform from which to work.
