Four Water Wells at the Afghan Town of Tangi

Responsible military presence in an area does not stop at military security tasks. The technical and financial capabilities of an international operation must also be used to improve the living conditions of the local population. In Tangi we turned water holes into wells to increase hygiene and efficiency in the rudimentary water supply of the township.
