Approximately 1,000 homes that were destroyed by Taliban forces during the Afghan civil war have been rebuilt in the Bagram District of Parwan Province and many former residents have returned to their homes, Radio Afghanistan reported on 23 January. The Afghan rural-development charity organization NPO rebuilt the homes using modern construction techniques. The project is estimated to have cost approximately $1 million. Another 4,000 homes in 36 villages remain in ruin in Parwan Province, but the project is expected to reconstruct another 500 homes by July. KM
