The Thisarapura Janasevana Housing Village in Maravila in the Puttalam district will be handed over to the public today under the patronage of Construction, Engineering Services, Housing and Common Amenities Minister Wimal Weerawansa, a ministry spokesman said.
It was constructed under the Janasevana one million housing programme of the Mahinda Chinthana Future Vision, he said.
"A large number of houses in Muhudukatuwa in the Naththandiya Divisional Secretariat collapsed due to coastal erosion in 2009.
The housing project was constructed for people who lost their homes in the incident.
Seven perches land for each family was provided by the Naththandiya Divisional Secretariat and 29 houses constructed under the project," he said.
The National Housing Development Authority (NHDA) spent 5 million rupees for the project.
The Disaster Management Ministry provided Rs 100,000 for each family.
The NHDA coordinated and provided technical assistance to build the houses, the spokesman said.
Social Services Senior Minister Milroy Fernando, State Resource and Enterprise Development Minister Dayasritha Tissera, Civil Aviation Minister Priyankara Jayaratne, External Affairs Deputy Minister Neomal Perera, Parliamentarians Arundika Fernando, Antony Perera and other guests are expected to participate.
