Rama hands over house keys to Myftari family in Sauk: We will rebuild everything one by one

TIRANA, Feb 19 /ATA/ Prime Minister Edi Rama visited on Wednesday the new home of Naim Myftari in Sauk, where the family of four was left homeless by the Sept 21, 2019 earthquake, whereas today they have a new home completely rebuilt.

Accompanied by Tirana mayor, Erion Veliaj, Rama handed over to the family members the key of the new house rebuilt up to the standards.

“We back up words with deeds,” PM said while pledging the reconstruction of all individual homes damaged by earthquake within this year.

“All houses will be built one by one. Those in the village are the most affected as they stay in tents. As they cannot leave their land plots unattended, they have chosen to live in tents. They will be the first to have their damaged homes reconstructed, so they will enter the completely rebuilt houses within this year. As for the affected population living in the city, the construction of apartment buildings requires big projects. All that matters is that their new homes will be like a dream,” Rama said.

PM brought up during the conversation the shortage of labor force. On the one hand a great deal of jobs will be created in construction, on the other there is a significant shortage of labor force, he said.

Veliaj highlighted the fund collected at the Conference of Donors for Albania saying: the great news comes from PM about reconstruction of the country.
