Obaidullah and Rohollah (guards) at Turquoise Mountain Headquarters
They are both from the Panjshir. Obaidullah is 28 and has been working for security companies for four years. Rohollah is 43 and spent his earlier years as a Mojahid fighting the Russians.
The residents of Murad Khane are enjoying improved conditions thanks to charity Turquoise Mountain. Turquoise Mountain is a charity set up by Rory Stewart. He was asked personally by Prince Charles to take on the task of rebuilding the ancient heart of Kabul. His charity using local labour and the goodwill of the community is substantially into the task and has also set up a school training Afghans in traditional crafts. The area had literally been turned into a rubbish dump, now though using ancient skills the buildings are being restored to their former glory, Stewart is hopeful that he can contribute significantly to the local economy.
