Local sources in the central Afghan province of Bamyan say that important documents, including results and records from the Bamyan Education Directorate’s 1398–1400 years, were destroyed by floods in the province.
A source said yesterday, on Sunday, August 28, the Bamyan Education Directorate’s Results and Certificate division, together with at least seven computer workstations and 30 volumes of record booklets, were all destroyed.
Videos that have been extensively disseminated on social media depict how the Bamyan Education Directorate is being restored following flooding and how employees are cleaning the affected areas.
On the other hand, the Bamyan Education Directorate has not yet spoken or released a statement.
Nonetheless, the Taliban governor for Bamyan province, Abdullah Sarhadi has appealed to national and international aid agencies to provide aid to the flood-hit Bamyan province at a meeting.
This comes as floods in the central Afghan province of Bamyan have inflicted not only a significant loss of lives but also an economic loss to the residents in Bamyan’s central district and other regions of the province.
The Afghanistan Meteorological Department (AMD) issued warnings and alerted people in 24 different provinces across Afghanistan about the predicted torrential downpours resulting in turbulent flash floods.
