    I am doing a project on Salt Iodisation in Afghanistan with Iodine Global Network and am unable to reach out to the salt processors in Afghanistan. Since you have done an interview with Mr. Mahfoozullah Fagur of Pamir Blaur Group Refinery Factory, it would be of great help if you could help me with his contact.
