Madam Yormie spoke over the weekend at the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the first unit under MUFFA Liberia low income housing project.

She recognized the respective roles of Afriland First Bank-Liberia Limited, Habitat for Humanity International Liberia, African Union, Liberia Bank for Development and investment, amongst others, for their support and technical assistance to the success of the project in Liberia.

Also speaking at the groundbreaking program, the Chief Party of Habitat for Humanity International Liberia chapter, Mathew Ndote pledged his entity’s commitment to supporting MUFFA Liberia low income project for vulnerable women in the Country.

Mr. Ndote said:” The focus of the entity is to see more Liberians own their personal homes at a low cost, and we will encourage the use of localize materials in constructing those houses.”

He said his institution is working in seventy countries providing safe, adequate and affordable shelters for low income earners.

The Coordinator of the National Housing Authority (NHA) Slum Up-grading Unit, ES-Samier Bropleh, said the NHA has now realized that Government Estates which were built for low income earners had not benefited them over the years.
