AMMAN — Sixteen underprivileged families in Balqa’s Salt and Deir Alla districts on Saturday received new houses as part of a Royal Initiative to build homes for underprivileged families, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Covering all the Kingdom’s governorates, the initiative was launched in 2005 in implementation of His Majesty King Abdullah’s directives expressed in his meeting with dignitaries of the governorates.

The initiative aims at providing decent and stable living conditions for beneficiary families that are chosen according to the Ministry of Social Development’s criteria, Petra reported, adding that it is a manifestation of His Majesty’s vision of achieving sustainable development in the social and economic spheres.

Royal Court Chief Yousef Issawi handed over the keys of new houses to beneficiary families and toured the fully equipped and furnished residences, accompanied by Minister of Public Works and Housing Yahya Kisbi and Minister of Social Development Ayman Mufleh.

A total of 400 housing units will be built in the first stage of the housing project, followed by the construction of 370 housing units during the second stage.

A proper road network, sewage system as well as basic water and electricity services will also be provided.

During the handover ceremony, which witnessed adherence to current health measures due to the spread of COVID-19, the families expressed their deep appreciation towards the Royal initiatives, adding that they are reflective of His Majesty’s commitment to ensuring people’s welfare, Petra reported.
