Keerimalai Housing Project nearing completion

[Sep 09 2016]

The 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).
