ABOUT 1000 people are expected to benefit from the Raiwai Housing Project following its official opening in Suva yesterday by Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama.

He said the 210 new Public Rental Board flats were more than just bricks and mortar.

"A home is the heart of the family. It should be a place of refuge, a place of happiness, a place where children are nurtured and taught the values on which any community depends.

"Today we celebrate the fact that more than 200 families are about to get the keys to these properties and open the door to a new life for themselves and their loved ones.

"They join the many thousands of other ordinary Fijians around the country who have benefited from government's housing programs — whether through the Public Rental Board, the Housing Authority, the squatter settlement upgrade project, the Housing Assistance Relief Trust, or the Housing Assistance Grant for first home buyers."

Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama said their total spending on the housing sector in the past few years was more than $93million.

PRB board chairman Narendra Prasad said the project provided decent and affordable housing for Fijian families.
