Country on a progressive journey today - Minister

The Social Services Ministry recently handed over 48 newly constructed houses to low- income families with differently abled members in the Anuradhapura district, Social Services Minister Felix Perera said.

"These houses have been built under a special programme initiated on the directive of President Mahinda Rajapaksa to construct 1,000 houses for low income earning families with disabilities," the minister said.

"As an initial step, we commenced the construction of 48 houses in line with the Deyata Kirula national exhibition conducted in Oyamaduwa last February," he said.

"The other houses are being built in several areas across the country. Under this programme, action has been taken to construct 1000 houses in each Divisional Secretariat Division. Each house is estimated to cost cost of Rs 250,000 while the manpower for constructions purposes will be provided by the residents of the respective areas," he said.

The minister said that the government is always committed to uplift the lives of families of disabled persons from all walks of life. "We should not forget people with disabilities. The country is now experiencing a development boom in the aftermath of the war. We believe that the real development is a process where certain social needs of disabled people could be fulfilled. It is clearly evident that the country has ventured on a progressive journey.
