A total of 193 distressed, homeless families of 17 Upazilas of Cumilla district are going to get brick-built houses as a gift from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on the occasion of the ‘Mujib Borsho’.
The Department of Disaster Management (DDM) has been constructing the houses on behalf of Ashrayan Project-2 of the Prime Minister’s Office.
The main thrust of the initiative is to improve the standard of living ensuring the basic needs of the landless, homeless and distress people.
Laksam Upazila Project Implementation Officer Debesh Chandra Das said that the construction work of the houses has already been completed and the houses will be handed over to the beneficiaries by mid-January.
The distressed people, who have at least one to 10 decimals of land but no house, were given the brick-built houses as gifts of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, he added. - BSS
