Project Khaje Bughra Phase 1 2012


Stichting Farda heeft zich de afgelopen jaren hard ingezet voor het realiseren van een geavanceerd waterput voor de bewoners van een sloppenwijk in Kabul. Daarmee krijgen honderden mensen toegang tot schoon drinkwater.


The past few years a lot of projects were carried out, both in and outside Kabul and most of these projects were carried out under supervision of the ministry of agriculture. Also, a few districts have been formed which are not under the construction plans of the ministry. These areas are mostly populated by immigrants, who have fled from dangerous cities of Afghanistan. Some of them are also Afghan migrants who returned to their homeland, mainly from Iran and Pakistan.

At the moment there are estimated hundred thousand people in the 15th district, Khaje Bughra and just a small proportion of them has access to clean drinking water. They have to travel miles away from home to their families or acquaintances to be provided with potable water. This leads to the death of hundreds of children on a yearly basis caused by car accidents, abuse, robbery or diseases caused by polluted drinking water.

Farda wants in cooperation with Water4Everyone foundation, to put advanced water well with a purification system and reserve in Khaje Bughra to support the needy people there with one of their main problems. The system will be set up in the Netherlands and moved to Afghanistan. At the moment, this technology is very unique in Afghanistan, because it is very advanced, time consuming and valuable. In this project we get help from experts in the field of sanitary facilities, such as Van Hall University in Leeuwarden.
