Ayn Brayssa Water Is no more valid for drinking... because of pollution with houses dusts...
Thanks To The Australian Edbel Charity Association
Actually, two plans in the village were supported by Edbel League in Australia.
One: Arrangement and road opening to the cimetry of the village.
Two: A road opening between two parts of the village, making distances between some houses and the main village road shorter.
Thanks from the people of Edbel to the Australian Edbel Charity Association.
