The ICRC in Afghanistan: focus on water and habitat

28-12-2009 Field Newsletter

This delegation newsletter from the ICRC in Kabul focuses on the ICRC's water and habitat programme in Afghanistan including work in prisons, hospitals and orthopaedic centres, urban and rural areas and hygiene promotion activities. This special edition of the newsletter is dedicated to the memory of Engineer Abdul Wadood, a long-time and cherished member of the ICRC Wathab team, who died in August 2009 in a massive explosion in his Kandahar neighbourhood.
