A Village in Iran

BBC has published a report about Barkok a village in eastern corner of Southern Khorasan province in east of Iran. These dates about infrastructure development of the village are interesting:

Health Center: 1983
Electricity: 1985
Clean Water System: 1995
Phone lines: 2005
Renovating Village School: 2006 (funds provided by private donations)

For past few years Southern Khorasan is suffering from an unprecedented draught. However these villagers are still striving to survive in the climate change.
