Multiple Challenges Slow Progress

Garden of Peace and Hope, Afghanistan

 

Hopefully, the situation at the Garden of Peace and Hope will get better soon. In recent days, the Ministry of Culture said it would allow us to continue our exhibitions and activities if the pandemic does not rise among people. We have some problems due to the virus, yet we continue to work in the Garden.

As the coronavirus spreads all around the country, the city has been in lockdown for several months. The Garden of Peace and Hope looks beautiful throughout this challenging time.

After five months, we still await the day when the government will announce the end of the lockdown.  We are not allowed to open the centres until then. The students frequently ask us when we will reopen and our answer is always that we have to wait for the government to announce it.

Again, this spring has showered the Garden with lots of rain. All the flowers are blooming beautifully! The past winter was the coldest yet in Kabul. Our “leap day” exhibition was enjoyed by so many, yet we have not been able to hold exhibitions since then, due to the security situation.
