When lack of means, leads to innovation
Afghanistan is a poor country. However, it is a country that cares about its inhabitants as much as possible and tries to do its best on purpose to maintain their health.
Lately, the days and nights of the Afghan people are haunting by a nightmare. The nightmare of coronavirus (COVID 19). This nightmare has created a gap between people’s relationships. Their kindness and mutual help. This powerful virus, launched by China, has claimed the lives of three people so far in Afghanistan.
Residents of my country do not have the necessary facilities everywhere to protect themselves from the virus. Poverty, unemployment, a lack of security and a lack of health services, influence the prevention of the spread of the virus. For this reason, Muhammad Dawod Haidari, Mazar-e-Sharif city cultural developer, has innovated and built mobile taps and hand washing facilities in collaboration with the municipality of Balkh.
These mobile facilities, feature taps with tanks of 500 liters of water and antiseptic fluid. They are located in central parts of the city and citizens can access them at all times of the day. This may seem like a small undertaking, but it is very effective in some places. It shows and promotes the mutual help and responsibility that members of our society have towards each other.
These facilities provide free services to residents in order to remain safe against the coronavirus.
