Four water supply networks worth fourteen million Afghanis total were developed in the province of Khost by the Department of Rural Rehabilitation and Development in cooperation with the Citizens Organization For Advocacy and Resilience (COAR).
With the help of these projects, about 700 families now have access to clean water.
These water supply networks have been built in the province's center and in Ismailkhail district.
"We were considering a total of five villages, and this project was discontinued in one village due to the lack of funding from the donor, but deep wells and high-altitude concrete reserves were developed in four villages,” said Mohammad Hakim, the provincial head of COAR.
Locals are pleased with the building of water supply networks in their areas.
"This project is crucial to us. We were experiencing problems due to a shortage of water. We gained a lot from this project,” said Mohammad Jan, a resident of Khost.
"Now, we have access to water and we are happy,” said Sayedullah, another resident of Khost.
According to Khost's local officials, the implementation of such projects is important and will ensure the safety of the institutions engaged in Afghanistan's development.
"We have informed all institutions that we would ensure your security at the cost of our lives,” said Mohammad Anwar Dinparwar, deputy governor of Khost Province.
The majority of people living in rural parts of Khost still lack clean water to drink.
