A Gift from God

Water1 JEN started drinking water projects in the Province of Parwan in collaboration with the municipal government.  The Province, despite its potential for economic development as situating in the outskirt of the city of Kabul, has affronted a serious lack of safe drinking water.  In the meantime, unclean water has seriously affected lives of local populations and repatriated refugees in the Province.  JEN’s irrigation projects aim to provide safe clean water by restoring destroyed water pipes and canalising available fountains.  Dsc06404

Villages are sensitive about their water rights.  Local people finally approved JEN’s neutral projects, believing that water is a divine gift from God and thus one should share equally through the JEN’s projects without any discrimination.  The divine water blesses hopefully the future of Afghan population.
