Local Officials: 8,000 Houses Needed for Earthquake Victims

While the construction of nearly 2,000 houses for the earthquake victims of Herat province has started, the local officials of the province said that the earthquake victims need 8,000 houses.

According to them, more than eight thousand houses in dozens of villages of Herat province were completely destroyed in successive earthquakes.

"According to the statistics obtained by the Red Crescent and other organizations, we need at least 8 thousand houses for the victims,” said Abdulla Akbari, head of the urban development department in Herat.

“Everything has arrived for these people and now it is the issue of building settlements, you can see that the process has actually started in various places,” said Hayatullah Muhajir Farahi, deputy of the Herat governor.

Meanwhile, in a number of destroyed villages in the Zinda Jan district of Herat, the construction of settlements by businessmen and philanthropists continues.

“We decided to build 100 houses at our own expense for the survivors of the martyrs,” said Bashir Ahmad Khawafi, head of the charity foundation.

The residents of Kushak Herat village, who lost their shelter in the earthquake, are happy that a house will be built for them, but they want the construction of their houses to be good enough to withstand earthquakes.

“Winter is on the way, the nights have become very cold, and it is difficult to spend under the tent, if it is built before winter, that will be very good,” said Abdulla, a Herat resident.

“At the moment, if it is in this state, it may be damaged because the work is in progress,” said Shukorullah Akbari, an engineer.

As a result of dozens of earthquakes and their aftershocks in the last month, dozens of villages in Zinda Jan, Injil, Robat-Sangi, and Gulran districts of Herat have been completely destroyed. The residents of these villages have lost their shelter and are living in tents.
