5 eco-migrant families to receive homes in rural Georgia

Tuesday, May 30
A total of 45 families who moved away from their home areas due to landslide risks, earthquakes or other natural disasters will soon become the owners of new houses in different parts of Georgia.

It means that those families will have the opportunity to buy houses according to their preferences, and move to their own new apartments worth under 25,000 GEL.

This year some other 46 eco-migrant families have already been given new apartments.

Since 2013, the Ministry of Internally Displaced Persons from the Occupied Territories, Accommodation and Refugees of Georgia has moved 347 families to safer locations across Georgia.

At the same time the Ministry of IDPs is also assisting internally displaced families from the Russian occupied regions of Georgia - Abkhazia and Tskhinvali (South Ossetia) - with village houses with plots of land to produce their own agricultural products.

Within the framework of the state project, families can choose where in the village they want to have their new house. All the houses include plots of land for further production and income.
