A township in need of basic facilities in Logar province

logarA township where once 2,755 families lived is left with only 660 families.

Many left the place for lacking housing scheme, water supply, health services and schools.

The township was built in 1995 for the refugees returning back to their country.

The dwellers have lost the hope to get help from the government.

“We returned to our country in the hope of having our own home. But there is no one to address our problems,” Pajhwok Afghan News quotes a dweller named Haji Ashur, Refugees’ Council head.

Other dwellers had the same tale to tell.

Absence of school buildings, dilapidated roads and health clinics has made life of the dwellers miserable.

Meanwhile, Director of Refugee Affairs Noor Ahmad Salehi said UNHCR and government entities have been approached to provide water supply to the township.

He added his department could offer only plots and building materials to new returnees, but they were also bound to provide other required services as well.
