Local people in several flood-stricken areas of the country moved into new houses in the run-up to the 75th founding anniversary of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
On September 17, a ceremony of moving into new houses took place in Kangbuk-ri, Kumchon County of North Hwanghae Province, which has turned into a socialist rural village by completely removing the traces of natural disaster.
Twenty days later, the residents in the flood-afflicted areas in Kaesong City, North and South Hwanghae provinces also moved into new houses.
That was not all. Hundreds of families were provided with low- and single-storey dwelling houses newly built in Wonhwa-ri, Phyongwon County of South Phyongan Province and the Sunan area of Pyongyang.
The State gave the new houses to ordinary working people free of charge.
At present, a larger number of houses are being built in the areas hit by natural disasters, including North and South Hamgyong provinces.
