Many of Baghdad's neighborhoods lack essential infrastructure like power and clean water. The United Nations said last week it feared an outbreak of cholera in Baghdad where at least 101 cases have been reported in the past three weeks. Sadr City, Madaien and Baladiyat are among the Baghdad neighborhoods most affected by the bacterial disease, it said. It added that pollution of waterways by raw sewage is perhaps the greatest environmental and public health hazard facing Iraqis, particularly children.

KANDAHAR: A potable water supply project, which has earlier been conducted in the country’s southern province of Kandahar, was completed and inaugurated, the provincial governor office said in a statement the other day.
The project was launched earlier in Kandahar, the provincial capital city, with the financial support of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and was inaugurated in a fiber cutting, ceremony, attended by some provincial officials, the statement said.
In most parts of the country, people are facing lack of drinking water, as experts warn that the country is facing lack of underground waters due to consecutive harsh droughts in the country.
