PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): A kilometer-long road and a 1000-meter retaining wall were put into service in Pul-i-Alam, the capital of central Logar province, on Monday after being completed at a cost of 17 million afghanis.

Maulvi Mohammad Qasim Rashid, director of Logar rural rehabilitation and development, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR had funded the two projects which took six months to complete.

He said the one kilometer rural road was constructed in Porak area of Pul-i-Alam and the wall was constructed in the refugee township, benefitting 9,000 families.

Rasul Khan, a resident of Porak area, told Pajhwok thousands of families in Kamalkhel and Porak areas were provided with convenience with construction of the rural road.

He added residents of the mentioned areas had been unable to use the road during rain and snow due to its bad condition and faced many problems.

He urged the government and international organizations to complete unfinished projects in Pul-i-Alam and in remote districts of the province.

Haji Rahmat Gul, a resident of the refugee township, told Pajhwok the wall saved hundreds of families from the danger of floods.

Two weeks ago, UNHCR distributed food and non-food items to hundreds of poor and needy families in Pul-i-Alam and Khoshi districts.
