PASIR PUTEH, March 27 — The federal government has allocated RM275 million this year to build and repair 11,223 houses for the poor and those affected by disasters.

Deputy Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Ahmad Jazlan Yaakub said, of the total, 3,055 units were new while the rest would be repaired.

“In Kelantan alone, the federal government has allocated RM11.5 million to build 173 houses and to repair 418 units with the cooperation of the Urban Well-being, Housing and Local Government Ministry under the National Blue Ocean Strategy (NBOS),” he said.

He spoke to reporters after handing over new house keys to a single mother, Zaira Zakaria in Kampung Lepah, Selising here today.

Zaira, 39, lost her home to a fire in May last year.

Ahmad Jazlan said the construction of the two-bedroom house started in October last year and completed in three months.

“The house was built by 15 firemen from Pasir Puteh Fire and Rescue Station together with the villagers,” he said.
