This past Tuesday we celebrated the inauguration of the new sanitation system that has been installed at Shamsa Village Orphanage. Everyone at PARSA would like to extend a huge thank you to the Bremen Overseas Research and Development Association (BORDA) for taking on the project to install the new DEWATS sanitation system for the compound. Previously the septic tanks in use were not functioning correctly which created a very unsanitary, not to mention unpleasant, conditions for the children. A huge thank you also to the German Embassy who funded the project. Step by step Shamsa Village is becoming a leading model in Afghanistan for how great an orphanage can be.
