AFSC’s humanitarian work in Vietnam focused on rehabilitating civilian casualties of the war. Many civilians, especially children, lost limbs as a result of booby traps and bombing campaigns in the countryside. It is without a doubt that innocent people suffer the worst of war. War was a disruption of their daily lives, but also constituted a theft of an otherwise peaceful future. Relief efforts were severely limited due to a lack of personnel, supplies, clean water, and sanitation.
