Water Shortage in Nimruz Province

South-western Nimruz province is suffering from water shortage, despite the plentiful Helmand River running through the region.

Residents have called on the government to solve their problem, but some complain that the government has disregarded our situation.

“I came here at 2:00 AM, but sometimes we don’t get water at all. The officials are travelling in modern vehicles but we don’t even have drinking water,” a resident complained.

According to the residents, drinkable water comes through a pipeline that flows for two hours a day. Due to the long queue, the pipeline runs out of water before everyone is supplied.

The residents complained that despite the billions of dollars of aid to the government for development projects, their problem has not been addressed.

“Those who were meant to pay attention were careless about the drinking water project in Nimruz which has taken three years [already]. People have looked at this issue many times,” deputy provincial governor Haji Abdul Qasem Khedri
