Prime Minister’s Eid Gift: 18,000 More Homeless Families to Move into Their Own Homes

Under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s dream project Ashrayan-2, aimed at ensuring housing for all, another 18,566 landless and homeless families will receive free houses along with land. Through this initiative, 70 upazilas, including all upazilas of 26 more districts, will be declared land and homeless-free.

On Tuesday (June 11) at 11 AM, the Prime Minister will inaugurate the distribution of these houses in the second phase of the fifth stage via video conference from Ganabhaban.

These destitute families will receive houses as an Eid gift from Sheikh Hasina before the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha.

The Prime Minister will speak via video conference with beneficiaries from Kaliganj in Lalmonirhat, Char Fashion in Bhola, and Eidgaon in Cox’s Bazar.

Officials from the Ashrayan project have stated that all upazilas in Dhaka, Gopalganj, Shariatpur, Faridpur, Netrokona, Cox’s Bazar, Chittagong, Chandpur, Lakshmipur, Noakhali, Comilla, Feni, Gaibandha, Lalmonirhat, Nilphamari, Sirajganj, Bogura, Satkhira, Jessore, Khulna, Narail, Bagerhat, Barguna, Barisal, Habiganj, and Sunamganj, totaling 70 upazilas, are becoming land and homeless-free.

Including the previously declared districts and upazilas, a total of 58 districts and 464 upazilas are becoming land and homeless-free.

In 1972, the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, initiated the rehabilitation program for the homeless.

Following Bangabandhu’s program, his daughter, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, undertook the initiative to provide houses and land ownership to the homeless and landless through the Ashrayan project in 1997.

Under the Ashrayan project and other projects since 1997, a total of 867,904 land and homeless families, comprising approximately 4.34 million people, have been rehabilitated across the country. Under the Ashrayan project alone, 582,053 land and homeless families, comprising 2.91 million people, have been rehabilitated.

In the Mujib Centenary alone, 266,012 land and homeless families have been rehabilitated.
