Housing programme for Novice Monks’ parents

The National Housing Development Authority (NHDA) as per the instructions of Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has launched a programme to construct houses for the homeless parents who have given their children to the Buddhasana to be ordained as Novice Monks.

A recent survey conducted by the Ministry of Buddha Sasana revealed that 23 families in the district whose sons have been ordained as Novice Monks are living in dilapidated houses or shanties due to poverty.

Considering the plight of these parents, the Prime Minister has instructed Kurunegala District NHDA Manager S. Narasinghe to launch a programme to build houses for the parents of these Novice Monks as a tribute to them sacrificing their sons for the uplift of the Buddha Sasana.

“Funds required for this project have already been allocated,” Kurunegala NHDA sources.
