NHA Allots US$1m For Permanent Homes For West Pointers
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, August 16 (LINA) – The Deputy Director General of the National Housing Authority (NHA), Prince Wreh, has disclosed that the entity has allotted US$1 million to build permanent homes for former residents of the Township of West Point in the VOA Community.

According to Wreh, the goal of the NHA is to construct more affordable homes for low income earners, noting that the NHA is fully committed to its mandate and will continue to do so for the growth and development of the country.

It can be recalled that hundreds of residents of the slum community of West Point, a suburb of Monrovia, were rendered homeless by sea erosion that destroyed several homes early this year.

Making the disclosure in an interview with the Liberia News Agency at the temporary home of the West Pointers in the VOA community on the Bomi Highway Tuesday, the NHA official, however, disclosed that the money will be able to construct only 125 units, which are not sufficient to accommodate the 1,700
family heads who were rendered homeless by the sea erosion.

He lauded authorities of the Ministry of State for Presidential Affairs for partnering with the NHA to construct a 32 two-bedroom temporary zinc apartments for residents relocated from the Township of West Point.

Also speaking, the Chairman of the relocated West Point residents, Rev. Denore W. Moore, lauded authorities of the NHA for constructing their temporary homes, but appealed to them to assist with food and other necessities to sustain them in their new homes.

Rev. Moore also stressed the need to construct a clinic and school in the area which the community currently lacks.
