The management of the National Social Security and Welfare Corporation (NASSCORP) has lauded authorities of the National Housing Authority (NHA) for the completion of a 35 unit housing community in Jah Tondo Town, Brewerville, outside Monrovia.
During the tour of the facilities on Wednesday, vice chair for the Board of NASSCORP, Cletus Sieh said his organization is delighted with the level of work the NHA has done in completing a total of 91 units.
Mr. Sieh expressed gratitude to NHA, adding, “As a partner who is a 100 percent funder of the project, we will continue to collaborate with the housing authority to address the need for housing in Liberia.”
He said that supporting housing projects remains part of NASSCORP’s social responsibility.
Mr. Sieh said since the appointment of Samuel Wluh as managing director of the NHA, “there have been more tangibles,” for which NASSCORP has seen the need to continue working with the Wluh-led administration to ensure that all Liberians own their own house.
He said the process of constructing more of the housing units was important so that project’s funders can see that their contribution to the economy was purposeful “because of the level of developments currently taking place across the country.”
For his part, NHA Deputy Managing Director for Administration, Prince A. Wreh, assured the NASSCORP officials of the commitment of the NHA to provide housing for the people of Liberia.
He said his organization remains focused in addressing some of the challenges, including the provision of water, and working with the Ministry of Education to ensure that children have access to school, particularly in the Jah Tondo Town area.
“We are involved in formal community developments such as social and economic surveys to capture schools, clinics and even police stations in the project diagram,” Mr. Wreh said.
