UN helps with water shortage in Syria

June 15th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

The UN is funding a project with the Syrian government in the Kurdish area in the north-east of the country.

The $58 million work will provide easier access to clean water in the Jazeera, helping almost 200,000 families.

Part of the money will go towards farmers’ and craftworkers associations, and some of the money will be given in low interest loans to farmers in the region.

    So, socialism did not work, and those people in the north where main fortune of the country exists did not yet get clean water after 40 or 50 years of Baath Party rule. What a shame, do they feel the shame that the UN is giving them the assistance to get their people clean water in the amount of 58 million dollars.
    We should also remember that one guy, baathis, and a member of the parliament, and the brother the leader of Syrian and the uncle of the current president, died in 2005, left behind him 86 time the 58 millions. I have to mention that he did not only leave 5 billions dollars, he also left 900 houses and 250 kg of gold.
    Is that means socialism good for some and not good for most or it is live or please let me know when Syrian people will stop begging for assistance and use your money.
    Just a question?
