Flats to internally displaced families

Wednesday, June 15
Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili announced at a Governmental meeting that 209 more Internally Displaced families would soon receive flats under private ownership in Tbilisi.

“We have gifted flats to about 12,000 Internally Displaced families since coming to power in 2012,” the PM stated.

Kvirikashvili stressed the process would continue, as providing the category of people with normal, permanent accommodations was the Government’s “direct obligation.”

Based on the latest 2014 year statistics released by Georgia’s Ministry of Internally Displaced Persons from the Occupied Territories, Accommodation and Refugees of Georgia, there were 86, 283 registered internally displaced families throughout Georgia which was equal to 259, 247 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

Most of them - 34, 314 families (98, 742 IDPs) in total - were registered in Tbilisi.

The Government initially gifted flats to the most vulnerable IDPs living in sub-standard living conditions.
