distributions made to wasit province for area projects


Al Kut, Wasit.  The Coalition Provisional Authority South-Central provided more than $804,400 (1.45 billion Iraqi Dinars*) for community projects in Wasit Province.     

The money will be used to repair the police station and training facilities, the water works, the radio and television station, the sports and youth club, a bridge, and a frozen food warehouse.  The project money also included funds to assist with police uniforms.    

CPA believes a good educational system is essential as Wasit Province progresses toward self-government, so CPA provided $304,500 ($5.48 million Iraqi Dinars) for 609 schools.  Each of the 609 schools will receive $500 (900,000 Iraqi Dinars*).  Repairing and improving these schools creates a better learning environment for children and increases opportunities for their futures as they learn in a free Iraq. 

Assisting the people in the Wasit Province is an important goal for the Coalition Provisional Authority.  These Wasit Province community projects will employ local people from the community. 

It is part of a larger initiative to help Iraqis as they move forward toward democracy.  CPA South-Central will announce other projects in the coming weeks.


* Assuming $1 equal 1,800 Iraqi Dinars.
