Taliban completes eight water supply projects and two barrier wall projects in Paktika and Farah

Local Taliban authorities in Paktika and Farah have announced the completion of eight water supply and two retaining wall projects in their provinces.

The Taliban’s Directorate of Rural Rehabilitation and Development in Paktika said in a statement that the water supply networks were built at a cost of 10 million Afghanis from the Aga Khan Foundation in the Barmal and Giyan districts of the province  Meanwhile, the Taliban’s Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock Directorate in Farah said that the construction of two retaining walls at a cost of 10 million Afghanis in the villages of “Siyah Qala” and “Juy-e Safid” of the Behsud district of the province has been completed and put into operation.

According to the directorate, each wall is 300 to 310 meters long, and the construction of these walls will protect 600 families and 1,000 acres of agricultural land from the dangers of floods.

The directorate added that the cost of building the retaining walls was paid by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and completed with the technical cooperation of the Islamic Relief organization.

The completion of these projects is a positive step by the Taliban, as they provide much-needed infrastructure to the Afghan people. The water supply networks will provide clean drinking water to thousands of families, while the retaining walls will protect communities from the dangers of floods.

The projects were funded by international organizations and implemented by the Taliban, suggesting that the group is willing to work with the international community to improve the lives of Afghans.
