distributions made to babil province for area projects

 

Al Hilla, Babil Province.  The Coalition Provisional Authority South-Central today provided more than $911,000 million (1.73 billion Iraqi Dinars *) in community projects.  The projects will employ local people from Babil Province.       

The projects will repair the Babylon University College of Engineer Machine Shop, Iskandariya Railway Station, Al Musayyib Railway Station, Al Hilla Center for Youths, the Medical Association, City Hall, the Governorís Office, and a youth sports center.  The money will also provide an internet cafe at Babylon University, 2000 police uniforms, police checkpoint covers, 36 pumps for irrigation plants, sewage trucks, and archeological guard equipment. 

CPA believes a good educational system is essential as Iraq progresses toward self-government. The project money will also repair the Al Takadam Primary School, Nabukhadnugar Industrial School, and pave the road to a school and village.  Finally, the funds will construct a new school building for Al Rafidian School.  Repairing and improving 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 Babil Province is an important goal for the Coalition Provisional Authority.  Todayís money brings the total given during the last two months to $2.28 million (4.34 billion Iraqi Dinars *) for community projects in Babil Province.

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 1,900 Iraqi Dinars.
