Over thirty housing units under the Popo Beach fire disaster project have reached roofing level. The project according to contractors is moving on very fast with just twenty days gone since the commencement of the project.
Marthaline Mulbah field supervisor of the project from the Liberia Agency For Community Empowerment (LACE) speaking to reporters during a tour on the construction site said they are confident of meeting the 60 days deadline. She puts the current percentage of the project at 40.
Under the project 30 units are ready for roofing while 10 is under foundation level among others.
Madam Mulbah said she is impressed with the level of speed at which the project is ongoing.
She commended the community residents including beneficiaries of the project for their collaborative role they are playing to see the completion of the project soon.
Also speaking to reporters was the governor of the municipal borough of New Kru Town Alice Weah who praised President Weah for bringing great relief to her people after the recent fire disaster.
She encouraged her people to work hard with the contractors to ensure full realization of the project adding that they should take ownership of said developmental initiative.
At the same time beneficiaries have so far lauded the efforts of President George Weah for the initiative.
They wondered why would have happened to them without the intervention of the Liberian leader after fire destroyed their homes last month.
Meanwhile, the Popo beach 50 units fire disaster sixty days project under the auspices of President George Weah with direct supervision and implementation from LACE is expected to be completed late June as the beneficiaries upon full completion will for the first time live in modern homes or structures unlike their old zinc and or mix shift congested structures.
