On the International Volunteer Day: Kabul Youth Clean Kool-e-Hashmat Khan to Protect Rare Birds

Kabul City, Friday, Dec 05, 2014 — Marking the International Volunteer Day, a group of nearly 150 Kabul-area youth gathered today to clean Kool-e-Hashmat Khan, a wetland on the southeastern outskirts of Kabul City where a huge number of various birds used to live, and is now on the brink of ruin. To encourage its restoration, Youth for Change and Development Organization, a Kabul-based youth organization, led this campaign in partnership with the Afghan Ministry of Information and Culture, United Nations Volunteers and United Nations Development Programme in Afghanistan.

Kool-e-Hashmat Khan, once a natural wetland inhabiting 157 species of birds, and a recreational site for residents of Kabul City, has lost most of its birds in past over three decades due to poor attention from different governments and illegal encroachments by nearby communities. The wetland is now surrounded by auto repair workshops, a livestock auction house, and a number of other business activities, grabbing nearly 10 out of its 190 hectares of its land. Wastes produced by these activities are dumped in the wetland.
