Kyrgyzstan: improving access to clean drinking water
Osh, September 16 - Some 7,000 people in the village of Monok and some 10,000 in the Kumarjan Datka area of the city of Osh are set to receive improved access to clean drinking water, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said today.
Even before violence engulfed southern Kyrgyzstan in June, the ICRC had already stepped up its presence there to monitor the situation and prepare for emergency response. On the very first day of the clashes, the ICRC took immediate action to bring aid to thousands of people. The aid included emergency deliveries of potable water followed by technical support to boost the capacity of local water boards.
"By the end of the year, we intend to bring water that is safe to drink to another 22,000 people," said Aleksandr Mailyan, an ICRC water engineer based in Osh. "We have a very good working relationship with the local water board, and it is very gratifying to see our joint efforts achieve concrete results."
The ICRC has been visiting detainees and carrying out other humanitarian activities in Kyrgyzstan since 1999. It opened a representation in Bishkek in 2004 and re-opened an office in Osh in early 2010. A second office was opened in Jalalabad at mid-year.
