The District Village Housing Scheme (VHS) is another concept developed by Yangoru Saussia MP Hon. Richard Maru. The purpose of the (VHS) is to replace bush material dwelling places with modern permanent homes to improve their living standards of communities in the LLGs.
Mr Maru and his team have set an ambitious goal to have 100% of the Yangoru Saussia district families and communities living in permanent housing by 2030.
On Sunday 23rd August 2020, Mr. Maru was at Munji Village in the Saussia LLG to present roofing iron to a household in Munji the 14th recipient so far in the YS District to participate in the scheme.
The Yangoru Saussia District Development Authority (YSDDA) will only be providing roofing iron as part of the scheme. Individuals and home owners must provide for the rest of the building materials as per their house design.
This will ultimately add to the improvement of the (Water, Hygiene & Sanitation) or WASH program, electricity and other necessities.
