Provision of (WASH) services to IPDs

Over the past three months, the National Rural Water Supply, Sanitation and Irrigation Programme (Ru-WatSIP) of Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), with the financial support of UNICEF, could provide WASH services for as many as 9,000 families of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Herat province.

These IDPs were displaced from Ghor and Badghis provinces into Herat province due to drought.

The provided WASH services included construction of sanitary latrines and baths and distribution of hygiene kits and drinking water through tankers and construction of 130 water points.
