A group of well-wishers who have volunteered to assist the state in its rebuilding programme met with the President yesterday (March 10).
Among the group of around fifty persons, there were clergymen, private sector entrepreneurs and those representing Non Governmental Organizations. This was the third such team registered with the TAFREN to meet the President.
The other two groups have already signed Memoranda of Understanding with the Government. One group has already been allocated lands for building and construction has begun. More suitable lands are being identified for new housing projects; privately owned lands if found suitable will be purchased outright by the state.
