The National Housing Authority, NHA, has signed an agreement with the Ministry of Health to construct 100 housing units for health workers across Liberia. The project will be financed by the World Bank thru the Liberia Bank for Development and Investment or LBDI, purely Liberian-owned.
Deputy managing director for administration Prince Anything Wreh, who made the disclosure here, said,the NHA is in the process of constructing housing units in eight of Liberia’s 15 counties. Addressing reporters Tuesday at the Ministry of Information on Capitol Hill, director Wreh said the project is geared at buttressing government’s decentralization efforts.
He said that the units will enable health workers to be stable in a county and feel at home, adding that the facilities will be offered at a very affordable cost. Therefore, health workers who stood on the frontline and risked their lives to save fellow Liberians from the deadly Ebola virus, will be compensated and provided affordable housing in the various counties.
