Keerimalai Housing Project nearing completion
[Sep 09 2016]
Keerimalai housing project in Jaffna will be handed over to the
beneficiaries in the very near future. This housing project is being
carried out to provide shelter to IDP families that are languishing in
welfare centres in the peninsula. 100 houses are being built under the
first phase of the project.
A group of media personnel who traveled to Jaffna on
Wednesday (7th September) were accorded with the opportunity of visiting
the housing project and talking with the beneficiaries. The visit was
facilitated by the army. The media personnel also talked with state
officials and security forces officers involved in the project and
queried on the progress of the project.
Funded by the government, the Sri Lanka Army has
undertaken the construction of houses. Each two bedroomed house will
include all basic amenities including water, electricity and sanitary
facilities. In addition other public amenities such as roads,
playgrounds, pre schools etc. will also be developed. Houses are built
maintaining strict quality standards. The housing scheme is built on
land released by the security forces. Major General Mahesh Senananyake
met the visiting media personnel during a press briefing held yesterday.
Recently letters of assurance were presented to 100
displaced families during a brief ceremony held inside the Keeramalai
Housing Complex last month (26th August).
