Schools, Hospitals and Mosques for Afghanistan

Following on from my blog of the other day, I contacted the Department for International Development (DfID) yesterday through their website to ask them the following questions:

  1. Are you building/repairing any schools in Afghanistan? If so, how many?
  2. Are you building/repairing any hospitals in Afghanistan? If so, how many?
  3. Are you building/repairing any mosques in Afghanistan? If so, how many?

I shall keep you posted as to whether I get any answers.  If you are interested the report about progress by DfID and the United Kingdom is contained in the Evaluation Report at http://www.dfid.gov.uk/Documents/publications/evaluation/afghan_eval.pd or in summary form at http://www.dfid.gov.uk/Documents/publications/evaluation/afghan-eval-summary.pdf.

There’s also an article on Times Online that provides an overview of the state of the UK humanitarian effort in Afghanistan at http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/asia/article6336722.ece.

  1. There are countless benefits to eating organic. Organic produce is higher in nutrients, lower in nitrates, free of artificial additives, and it tastes better. Furthermore, organic farming is better for the environment–another way the organic lifestyle benefits our children’s futures. It does not require great effort to make a change. Start small, if that helps. Switching to a heath food stores is a great place to start. Whatever you can do to make a small change is a great place to start.
