QALAT (Pajhwok): Built by UNHCR, a health center was opened in Qalat, the capital of southern Zabul province, on Tuesday.

Zabul public health director Dr. Abdul Hakim Hakimi told Pajhwok the facility was built on 2,500 square meters of land at a cost of 157,926 dollars and took nine months to complete.

He added the single-storey structure had all important facilities, including patient examination areas.

He said services to people in the hospital were launched today and cooperating organizations were assisting the hospital with regard to health workers and medicine.

Mamun Al Raqeeb, UNHCR head in the southern zone, told Pajhwok that besides the health center in Zabul, construction of a girls’ school building was also in progress and would be completed soon.

He added their organization constructed eight kilometers of roads in Qalat city, provided humanitarian assistance to thousands of people and assisted 50 women with machinery and tools for raising and producing chickens.

Ismatullah Afghan, a tribal leader of Zabul, said he was glad that development works had lately increased in the province.

He added the opening of the new health center facilitated residents of Qalat and four southern districts. He urged aid giving agencies to build health centers in remote areas of Zabul so that people could avail health services there.
