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:
- Are you building/repairing any schools in Afghanistan? If so, how many?
- Are you building/repairing any hospitals in Afghanistan? If so, how many?
- 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.
