Hospitals in Kapisa and a sports center in Kabul inaugurated

Yesterday, Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN) reported that two new 50-bed hospitals were inaugurated in Afghanistan’s north-eastern province of Kapisa. The hospitals are both in the provincial capital, Mahmud-i-Raqi. One is a maternity hospital, and the other will serve as a drug rehabilitation facility. Per the PAN report, funding for the projects came from Afghanistan’s Ministry of Counter-narcotics.

In other good news, Tolo news reported earlier in the week that a new center dedicated to teaching the Korean martial arts of Taekwondo was established in Kabul’s Afghan-Korea Vocational Training Institute. The $60,000 project was funded by the South Korean government, according to the Tolo news report. Abdul Rahim Alizai, one of the trainers at the institute, stated that the center would be “helpful in developing Afghanistan’s Taekwondo,” adding that there is a need for similar initiatives in other provinces as well. More than 200 students will train at the center.
