Ceremonies of moving into new houses took place on November 29 in North and South Hamgyong provinces and Rason City which had suffered severe damage caused by typhoons and heavy rain in August and September this year.
Earlier, more than 2 300 houses were newly built in the Komdok area for flood victims, and the residents in the damaged areas in Unpha County of North Hwanghae Province and Kangwon Province moved into new houses.
Such successive auspicious events are the main topic of conversation in all families and workplaces across the country: “All traces of damage have gone away.” “Houses are being built faster than the speed of cooking meals.” “Misfortune turned into blessings.” …
All the people are delighted with the fact that flood victims who were left homeless by flooding and typhoons have been provided with new houses free of charge tens of days later, as if they were their own. Everyone talks about the feats performed by the soldiers of the People’s Army and the Party members in the capital city of Pyongyang who have built new villages in the damaged areas under the leadership of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
Kim Yong Ran, resident in Moranbong District, Pyongyang, said: I was deeply moved on TV at the sight of flood victims rejoicing in receiving their house licenses. Such a happy event can be witnessed only in our country which spares nothing for the people’s well-being.
