LASHKARGAH (PANinfo-icon): A training centre for nurses was inaugurated in southern Helmand province on Wednesday, the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) said.

Helmand Governor Mohammad Naeem, the public healthinfo-icon director and other governmental officials attended the inaugural ceremony for the two-storey building that accounted for 18 million afghanis.

Governor Naeem said: “This is a building having 16 rooms with toilets and bathrooms and all essential facilities. It was constructed in a year with financial support from the Provincial Reconstructioninfo-icon Team.”
