A Muslim non-profit will step up efforts to rebuild houses in Aceh, Indonesia, following 2004's tsunami crisis and the March 2005 earthquake.
London-based Muslim Aid will work together with the Manila-based Asian Development Bank in a joint $4.9 million housing program. A total of 222 houses are slated to be built in the village of Meunassah Bueng in Aceh's Pidie district.
"While we are grateful that ADB has put its trust in Muslim Aid for the implementation of a quality housing program by providing us the funds, we on our part will leave no stone unturned to meet the standards mandated by ADB and BRR (the Aceh and Nias Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Agency of the government of Indonesia)", said Fadlullah Wilmot, Country Director for Muslim Aid in Indonesia.
The financial package is part of the ADB's $291 million grant to the Indonesian government to rebuild areas destroyed by the earthquake and tsunami.
