Drought-stricken border region looks around for vital water supplies.

This week the ICRC and the Australian Red Cross finished building over 2,000 latrines in three of the poorest districts of the provincial capital of Herat, in northwestern Afghanistan. In a further effort to reduce the risk of disease in the city, teams already on the spot are also working with families to improve hygiene.
Operation Mercy has been providing water to a number of villages in the Chah Ab district of Afghanistan. This, as well as the road projects, has been part of the Food-For-Work or Clothes-For-Work programme. Meaning that local residents are working on improvements to their surroundings and get either food or clothes as payment.
To the British North American Committee
A la suite du premier programme d'eau et d'assainissement qui s'est achevé en mars 2003, nos équipes travaillent actuellement sur un projet visant à approvisionner en eau une quarantaine de villages du district de Daman. Ces villages, bien que géographiquement proches de la ville, se trouvent dans un état d'isolement et de pauvreté avancé. Le village le plus proche est à une journée de Kandahar. La piste pour y accéder est longue et très difficilement praticable si ce n'est en tracteur, le meilleur moyen de transport qui reste rare.
