Waiting Hall at Chardara District Clinic.
On February 23, construction finished on the new waiting hall for the Chahar Dara District Clinic in Kunduz Province. The clinic is one of only a few health facilities in the district, and is a heavily trafficked facility. This small-scale project, identified as a need by the community and financed by USAID’s Community Based Stabilization Grants project, attached a metal awning to the medical clinic to protect waiting patients from the elements, and provided chairs for their comfort. The project will strengthen the relationship between the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the community, and diminish its mistrust of the government.
