Housing beneficiaries started receiving keys to their dream homes in East Sitra and East Hidd yesterday, as the Ministry of Housing began the distribution of additional housing units.
The Housing Ministry handed ownership contracts and keys to beneficiaries adhering to COVID-19 preventive measures. The move is part of a directive by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa to distribute 40,000 housing units and HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister, to distribute additional 2,000 housing units.
The ministry indicated that the distribution of the 2,000 units is part of the government’s pledge in its action plan to provide 25,000 housing units.
It also affirmed plans to launch new housing projects to achieve the goals of the Economic Recovery Plan.
The ministry asserted that the projects add to Bahrain's housing achievements attained under the comprehensive development march spearheaded by HM the King and the government, led by HRH Crown Prince and Prime Minister.
The list of eligible beneficiaries, the ministry said, was prepared in advance.
Some of the projects are at locations overlooking the waterfront, walking and cycling paths, open and green spaces.
