Summary
The Defense Authorization Act of 1986, 10 U.S.C. 2547, authorized the Humanitarian Assistance Program. Under the program, the Secretary of Defense can make available for humanitarian relief purpose any nonlethal excess supplies in DoD's system. Originally, the purpose of the program was to donate excess property to assist refugee and resistance groups in Afghanistan, in cooperation with the Agency for International Development (AID), and to fly wounded Afghans requiring reconstructive or specialized surgery to the United States and Europe. The first flight of supplies was sent to Pakistan for Afghan relief in March 1986. Subsequently, in 1987 the program was expanded to include noncommunist resistance groups Cambodia. DoD shipments, mostly by air, were coordinated with AID offices in Pakistan and Thailand. More recently, DoD has transferred excess property to an increasing number of other countries
