‫Unity Homes تطرح 1200 منزلاً في مدينة تاتو

مشروعات بقيمة 4,5 مليار شلن كيني تسهم في مشروعات الإسكان متوسط ومنخفض التكلفة لإنجاز جدول أعمال الأهداف الأربع الكبرى.  

نيروبي، كينيا، 31 من مايو 2019 /PRNewswire/ — بدأت Unity Homes، المطور العقاري للمجتمعات السكنية الشاملة في كينيا، مشروعًا لإنشاء 1200 منزل بمدينة تاتو. يوفر المشروع الذي يتكلف 4,5 مليار شلن كيني وحدات سكنية تتكون كل منها من غرفتين، ويبدأ سعر الوحدة من 4,2 مليون شلن كيني، ما يجعلها في متناول أصحاب الدخل المتوسط والمنخفض. تمثل تلك الوحدات جزءًا من خطة كبرى وضعتها مدينة تاتو لإنشاء ما يربو على 30 ألف منزل على مساحة المشروع البالغة 5000 هكتار بموجب اتفاقات تعاون وعقود مماثلة.

وقد صرح سعادة/ ريلا أودينجا،  الممثل الأعلى للجنة الاتحاد الأفريقي لتطوير البنية التحتية  وضيف الشرف خلال وضع حجر أساس المشروع، قائلاً: “هذا المشروع سيوفر وظائف. وهذه هي الوسيلة التي تمكننا من نقل شعبنا من الفقر إلى الرفاهية.”

وقد انضم إلى السيد/ أودينجا كل من السيد/ تشالرلز هنجا، كبير أمناء الهيئة الوطنية للإسكان والتطوير العمراني؛ والسيد/فرديناند وايتيتو، محافظ مقاطعة كيامبو؛ إضافة إلى مفوض المقاطعة وسفراء الولايات المتحدة والمملكة المتحدة والنرويج ونيوزيلندا.

وقد ألقى الأمين العام للإسكان الضوء على الدور الذي تنهض به اتفاقيات التعاون والمشاركة المبرمة مع شركات خاصة كمدينة تاتو في دفع عجلة النمو الاجتماعي والاقتصادي للبلاد.

وقد أفاد هنجا بأن كل منزل يتم بناؤه تنشأ معه 3-5 وظائف جديدة، مضيفًا أننا “ندعم القطاع الخاص من خلال إجراءات طموحة للغاية منها سن تشريعات وإجراء تغييرات على السياسات.”

وقد قطع المحافظ وايتيتو وعدًا مفاده “التعاون التام لتطوير مدينة تاتو. وأردف: “سنعمل على تيسير الأمر بالنسبة لكل من يرغب في الاستثمار وتطوير ممتلكاته.” كما أعلن المحافظ عن تشكيل لجنة التخطيط سريع المسار وإصدار الموافقات المرتبطة بالبناء لمدينة تاتو.

ونظرًا لوجود عجز يبلغ 1,9 مليون بيت تقريبًا، يقع ما نسبته 70% منها ضمن شريحة الدخل المنخفض والمتوسط، فإن مشروع Unity Homes يسهم في تحقيق هدف الحكومة المتمثل في إنشاء 500 ألف منزل.

وقال جايسون هورساي، المدير التنفيذي لشركة Unity Homes،: “نفخر بتقديم الدعم للحكومة لتنفيذ جدول أعمال الأهداف الأربع الكبرى. نريد أن يعيش كل مواطن كيني في بيت مريح يتناسب مع قدراته المالية في إطار مجتمعات عمرانية آمنة وحديثة.”

وأما السيد/ ستيفن جيننجز، مؤسس شركة Rendeavour ومالك ومطور مدينة تاتو، فقد ثمَّن الدعم الذي تقدمه الحكومة كما توجه بالشكر لشركة Unity Homes لاختيارها مدينة تاتو. “تمثل هذه اللحظة بالنسبة لنا فخرًا كبيرًا وإنجازًا بالغ الأهمية لأن مدينة تاتو قد أصبحت مدينة حقيقية وواقعًا ملموسًا نرى فيها المدارس والكيانات التجارية فضلاً عن خدمات إسكان متاحة كتلك المقدمة من Unity Homes”.

من المنتظر أن يستمتع مشترو وحدات Unity Homes بجميع وسائل الراحة المتاحة في مدينة تاتو بما في ذلك المدارس التي بدأت عملها بالفعل.  يوفر مشروع Unity Homes مرافق سكنية تشمل مركز لياقة بدنية وحمام سباحة ومطعمًا ومحال تجارية ومنتزهًا ترفيهيًا.

Ashghal opens new tunnel for traffic on Industrial Area Road

The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ opened a new unidirectional tunnel on Industrial Area Road on Thursday 30 May 2019, providing a direct link towards Barwa City.

The two-lane new tunnel is located between Mesaimeer Interchange and the interchange known as Wadi Lubara on the Industrial Area Road, and extends for 670 meters. The tunnel directly connects to Street 1115 and delivers a seamless free flowing link for road users of the Industrial Area Road coming from Doha and heading towards Barwa City, the Religious Complex as well as several educational and residential facilities.

This opening provides a new travel option that is more efficient than its former alternative as road users had to use the interchange known as Wadi Lubara on the Industrial Area Road, turn left towards Bu Samra Street then right to get to Street 1115 and reach Barwa City before the opening of the tunnel. Moving forward, motorists will be able to use the free-flowing new tunnel to reach their destinations.

Sidra Medicine Announces Winners of Schools Based Art Contest

Doha, Qatar, Sidra Medicine has announced the winners of a school-based art contest for students in Qatar. The aim of the contest was to highlight the dangers of poisonings and how to prevent them. It was open to students aged five to thirteen years.

The art contest was hosted by the Qatar Poison Center, a call center launched by Sidra Medicine that provides poisoning management advice through a free confidential helpline (4003 1111). The call center manages poisoning cases in adults and children alike.

Commenting on the contest, Chair of the Children’s Emergency Department at Sidra Medicine, Prof. Khalid Al Ansari said: Congratulations to the winners of our first contest. We were thrilled to see the enthusiasm from the students as we received over 400 entries from different schools across Qatar. It was very hard for the team to choose the winners � as each entry was unique and drove home the messages related to poisoning or poison prevention. One of the Qatar Poison Center’s mission is to prevent poisonings through public education and awareness programs. Engaging the students through the contest was a wonderful and fun way to raise awareness about poison control. I would also like to thank Qatar’s Ministry of Education and Higher Education for their support in helping us reach out to the schools for the competition as well as Ooredoo Qatar for their contribution of some of the prizes.
