Some 60 houses were donated by the Municipality of Tirana on Sunday to the Roma families living in a suburban area of the capital on occasion of the New Year. Mayor Erion Veliaj handed over the ownership certificates to those families accompanied by the US Ambassador Donald Lu and the Minister of Health Ogerta Manastirliu.
In a brief communication with journalists mayor Veliaj expressed his deep satisfaction for the realization of this project for the revitalization of this suburban area in cooperation with European Union and UNDP.
"This is another kept promise by the Municipality of Tirana. Roma community integration remains a priority of the municipality staff," said Veliaj, adding that the same standard will be implemented during the implementation of every social project in the future.
The US Ambassador Lu thanked the Municipality of Tirana for the realization of this project that solves the problem of one of the most vulnerable communities in the country.
