PB provides 50 Houses to displaced persons in the North

The People's Bank Golden Jubilee Housing Project consisting of 50 houses constructed along the Medawachchiya - Mannar road in Madhu was handed over to its recipients by Basil Rajapaksa, Minister of Economic Development recently.

These houses were provided to 50 Sinhalese and Tamil families who were displaced due to the war. Clean drinking water, electricity and furniture were among the numerous facilities provided, the bank said. Each house comes with a surrounding area of 20 perches. While commemorating its 50th anniversary, this housing scheme is the bank's main corporate social responsibility project inaugurated for the betterment of those persons living in the North and East provinces who were the victims of a 30 year long conflict.

The ministries of Resettlement and Economic Development were responsible in providing necessary infrastructure for this initiative. The construction of this housing project was carried out with the assistance of the Sri Lanka Army and other government organisations.
