FEROZKOH (Pajhwok): Benefitting around 8,000 families, some 67 different welfare projects have been completed and put into service in western Ghorinfo-icon province, an official said on Tuesday.

The projects executed under the National Solidarity Program (NSP) include asphalting of a 92-kilometer road, reconstructioninfo-icon of six water dams and as many hydropower projects.

Other projects include construction of eight embankment walls, three water reservoirs, digging of 47 wells and others.

Regional NSP director Gulzaman Naib told Pajhwok Afghan News the projects costing 74 million afghanis were implemented in Dawlatyar, Dolina, Saghar, Tolak and Chaharsada districts, benefitting around 8,000 families.

He said the projects provided facilities like drinking and irrigation water, electricity and rescuing residential homes from flood risks.

A resident of Tukhman village of Chaharsada district, Gul Ahmad, said they had to face many problems in finding clean drinking water in the past. But now they were able to find safe water in front of their homes, he added.

He said 240 families benefited from the water supply project and some people had planted trees in front of their homes after the availability of water, which was a big development.

Sayed Ahmad, a resident of Samak village of Dawlatyar district, said they had been without electricity in the past, but the activation of a small hydropower dam had electrified 340 homes in the area.

He said previously people could not watch TV for the lack of electricity but now they could.
