distributions made to al aNbar province
for area projects
Al Ramadi, Al Anbar. The Coalition
Provisional Authority South-Central today provided around $1.33 Million (2.39
billion Iraqi Dinars*) to fund over 25 community projects in Al Anbar Province.
The projects will assist Ramadi, Fallujah, and other towns within Al Anbar.
The projects in Ramadi include repairs to
the hospital water treatment facility pump, soccer stadium, sewer station,
sanitation department, train station, and Al Maard Street repavement. Projects
in Fallujah include repairs to the sewage system, train station, television
station, Saqlawiya Pontoon Bridge, police station, and the sports complex.
Assisting the people in Al Anbar Province
is an important goal for the Coalition Provisional Authority. Within the last
four weeks, the Coalition Provisional Authority has also given more than $2.8
million (5.04 billion Iraqi Dinars *) to Al Anbar Province. Today’s money
brings that total to $4.13 million (7.43 billion Iraqi Dinars *).
Al Anbar project funding will employ local
people from the community, and it is part of a larger initiative to help Iraqis
as they move forward toward self-government. The money for Al Anbar will be
used for important community projects in Fallujah and Ramadi. These projects
represent another step in bringing the government back to the Iraqi people.
$1 equal 1,800 Iraqi Dinars.
