An official opening ceremony of a social housing complex for 104 families, built with the support of the As-Safa Center charity foundation, took place in Tokmok. In a solemn setting, the families were handed keys and briefed on the terms and conditions of use of each house.
The opening ceremony was attended by Jyldyz Bakasheva, Deputy Head of the Cabinet of Ministers; Alymkadyr Beishenaliev, Minister of Health and Social Development of the KR; and other guests.
“Today, we have resolved the issue of housing for low-income population groups in the town of Tokmok. At the same time, we have provided housing not only for local residents but also for residents from other regions of the country. All 104 families have found their home, their hearth, and no longer have to worry about the future of their families; they can now look to the future with confidence. I congratulate all of you on the housewarming and wish you good health and prosperity,” said Minister Beishenaliev.
The Minister also attended the opening ceremony of a new residential unit for men in Tokmok Neuropsychiatric Inpatient Social Facility №2. The new building with an 80-bed capacity was built with the help of the As-Safa Center and equipped with all necessary furniture. “In 2018, the As-Safa Center has supported the construction of a residential unit for 50 beds here, while last year, the foundation built a unit for women with an 80-bed capacity,” noted the Minister.
