By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing is handing over several new homes this week.
On Monday, the MIDH handed over three houses to Epifanio Briceño, Bernaldina Mossiah and Rosi Sanchez in Paraiso in Corozal North.
Marisa Alamilla from the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing told Breaking Belize News (BBN) that more houses are being handed over.
“This whole month we’re handing houses over almost every other week,” she said.
Alamilla said that the MIDH sets to work on the construction of the houses once they are approved.
“These houses are approved by a housing committee, so we can only work as fast as the housing committee approves them. So, once they are approved, we move,” she said.
Alamilla said in some instances there are delays caused by reasons extraneous to the MIDH.
“We have a few that are not started yet simply because we’re waiting to clarify land issues,” Alamilla explained.
“Some of them are infrastructural like they need roads to get to them. Those are the challenges we’re facing at the Housing Department because we have to ensure that we can access the sites to build.”
Alamilla explained that the MIDH does not provide the land, so that is the biggest challenge.
However, she said MIDH is proud of what they are achieving.
“We are very proud of this project, and we see it as a life changing project for our Belizean people.”
Alamilla said the project is for single parents, both women and men, senior citizens, and those who are economically challenged as well.
