Homes to be built for Argo landslide victims

in Afghan Business

argoAfghanistan’s Rural Rehabilitation and Development Ministry has begun work on the construction of 150 homes for families who lost their homes in a disastrous landslide in Argo district of Badakhshan in May of this year.

The landslide triggered by heavy rain buried large sections of the village, killing at least 350 people and leaving more than 2,000 missing.

Indian government had donated USD 1mn to support housing project for the victims. Each building would cost USD 5,200 and would have two rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom.

Despite the inflow of millions of aid from foreign and local donors, the families continue to live in tents without basic amenities.

Minister Wais Barmak said more housing projects are going to be implemented in the future for remaining families.
