 distributions made to babil province for area projects

 

Al Hilla, Babil Province.  The Coalition Provisional Authority awarded more than $145,000 (275,500,000 Iraqi Dinars *) in contracts for community projects.  The projects will employ local people from Babil Province.       

CPA believes a good educational system is essential as Iraq progresses toward self-government.  The funds will completely repair and rebuild the Aur Primary School and the Ausuma bin Zaid 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. 

The money will also repair the Reghela Medical Clinic.  All the money is given in increments, and as the work is properly completed, more money will be given to the Iraqi contractors.   

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 and a sovereign government.  CPA South-Central will announce other projects in the coming weeks.

 

* Assuming $1 equal 1,900 Iraqi Dinars.
