A NEIGHBOR IN NEED IS A FRIEND INDEED

        Hajiselli community is situated in Yevlakh rayon. The local population has been faced with different problems for many years. One of the factors making people’s life hard was lack of potable water in the area. Due to the lack of underground water source in the area, people were obliged to use ditch water passing through several villages for drinking or buy water from trucks, which created and spread different diseases.

          Community members unsatisfied with the existence of this problem decided to address AzRIP’s Regional Operations Office in Lower-Shirvan zone that was ready to invest for the development of communities. AzRIP started collaboration with the community of Hajiselli as it was eligible for project criteria. The neighboring community of Havarli previously suffering from lack of potable water had already gained experience in this field – collaboration between that community and AzRIP was established a while ago. Both communities decided to combine their efforts for the same purpose and collaborate during the project implementation.

          During the project implementation in Havarli community which was collaborating with AzRIP, a great need was felt for manpower. Just at that time, Hajiselli community members offered their help to neighbors. They considered it their duty and treated it as if it was the start of their own project.  Together with Havarli community members working in shifts, Hajiselli community members did not leave their neighbors even for a moment; prevailing over the hot weather and fatigue in hot summer days. Seeing their labor and efforts in the successfully completed work, reliance of the Hajiselli population increased tremendously. Prior to starting the project implementation, these communities shared the labor and assigned responsibility of each community member.           Hajiselli Community Project Committee members speak about their future plans and activities and believe that other problems will also be solved. The most useful is that by helping their neighbor, Hajiselli community members became aware that great results can be achieved if one does not indifferently approach own problems. Joint work enables people to reach their goals more rapidly and in a better quality.         

          Being compassionate to each other’s problems is visual prove for community development. The Azeri people have always been distinguished for their hospitality and readiness to help a neighbor. This does not only build a confidence, but also contributes positively towards the common welfare.
