Humanitarian aid: Making sure it reaches needy souls

CENTRAL ASIA (BP) -- It was not how things were supposed to happen. We were responding to a disastrous earthquake that hit a remote area of Central Asia and killed thousands of men, women and children. Our three trucks loaded with provisions had just rounded a treacherous bend in the mountain road, skirting the precipice of a canyon. Suddenly, the two trucks in front of me began slowing down. As I slowed, I watched as a boulder rolled down the mountain toward the front of the first truck. The driver opened his door and ran from the still-moving vehicle. The driver of the second truck did the same. Both trucks puttered to a stop.
