Repairs to Well Give 5,000 Afghanis Drinkable Water

Nearly 5,000 residents of DehDadi, Afghanistan, once again have running water available in their homes this week thanks to the combined efforts of the U.S. Army's 10th Mountain Division, Regional Support Command-North, and the Region Command-North Public Affairs Advisory Team. Community members came out to personally thank the service members who worked to facilitate the repairs during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the water well house Aug. 21. The community had been without water for five weeks, leaving local women and children to walk great distances to obtain water from other sources. The community had tried to raise money from residents, but were not able to collect enough to fix the water pump, plumbing, and minor repairs. Photo by Tech. Sgt. Casey Martin
