Water supply is a serious problem in Afghanistan. That is why water can not be wasted in this rocky country with its dusty plains and arid deserts. Because of the lack of adequate water supply a small part of the land is under cultivation. When water becomes abundantly available it is used for small-scale food production. To improve the water system in Afghanistan, UNICEF is assisting with the drilling of new wells. This is the first step. Villagers must then be taught the vital link between clean water and public health if maximal benefits for children of Afghanistan are to be achieved.
