200 boxes on 3 skids containing more than 150 computers with printers and accessories, computers parts, and several math textbooks were presented by the U.S. Embassy's Political and Economic Counselor Oliver Griffith and U.S. Navy Commander Rolfe White to Maria Nelly Arispe from the National Administration of Public Education (ANEP).

The Denton Amendment allows the Secretary of Defense to transport, without charge, supplies furnished by nongovernmental sources intended for humanitarian assistance.
