Shar-e-Cott, pt. 2

Posted By: Erica

I met the elders of Shar-e-Cott, along with the other ACAP staff in the lumber yard of a large construction supply company. ACAP staff had pre-ordered and purchased the shovels, picks, gravel, lumber, wheelbarrows and other materials necessary to build a retention wall and irrigation system for the village of Shar-e-Cott. The retention wall and irrigation system will create a long-term improvement in the flood control, irrigation and water systems in the village, and in the short-term provide at least 250 families with day labor jobs constructing the wall and irrigation systems.
