distributions made to babil province for area projects


Al Hilla, Babil Province.  The Coalition Provisional Authority South-Central today provided more than $830,000 (1.58 billion Iraqi Dinars *) in community projects.  The projects will employ local people from Babil Province.       

The projects will repave roads in Hilla, Haidaria, and the road leading to the landfill.  The money will purchase computers for all 34 police substations in Babil Province, as well as training on how to use the computers.  The money will also purchase irrigation pumps for Mahawil and the Babil Pump Station, and it will also deconstruct bombed Fedayeen buildings. 

CPA believes a good educational system is essential as Iraq progresses toward self-government.  Today’s funds also include $36,600 (6.95 million Iraqi Dinars *) for Al Takadum Primary School.  During the summer, CPA also gave $520,000 (9.88 billion Iraqi Dinars *) to 1040 schools in Babil Province – each school received $500 (950,000 Iraqi Dinars *).  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.  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.
