Afghanistan: Kabul residents struggle due to lack of drinking water

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 28 Aug 2022, 12:09 am

People of Kabul city in Afghanistan and  some residents of Bala Koh of Bagrami district are currently facing a new trouble due to lack of drinking water availability.

According to reports, residents need to travel a long distance to obtain drinking water

Momena, a resident of Kabul, is one such woman who lacks drinking water close to her house and shared her story with Tolo News, " It has been three years that we brought water from there, and water is so scarce there sometimes, my children are old and cannot bring water for us--that is not time for work, that is their time to study."

There are 500 families living in the area and they say because of economic challenges they cannot buy water every time and cannot move to another place.

“Private companies don’t give us water so there is one water well ... most people leave this region,” Ibrahim Alamdad, community leader, told Tolo News.

Officials of the Red Crescent Society acknowledge the lack of water in the region and say they have a plan to solve it.

“It comes from Panjshir or other areas where rivers come and we can put some purification machines there and transfer the water to Kabul, and we have a plan for that,” Mohammad Nasim Ahmadi, head of inspection for the Afghanistan Red Crescent Society, told Tolo News.
