Houses for hurricane-displaced Barbudans

Work has begun on reconstructing homes for the first 20 beneficiaries of the EU-funded ‘Housing Support to Barbuda’ project.

Led by the Antigua and Barbuda government, and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the project aims to repair or rebuild 150 houses for some of the sister isle’s most vulnerable people.

A contract was signed last week with Harrigan Building Construction for commencement of the work. Local contractors will soon be invited to submit bids for the remaining houses.

The project will help families displaced by Hurricane Irma, increase the resilience of the community, and ultimately support the sustainable development of Barbuda.

The project also includes the purchase of a shredder for debris management, capacity building, technical assistance, and greening through tree planting.
