CAIRO: Egypt’s Military Engineering Authority (MEA) has finished building a total of 16,000 housing units for low-income people, particularly the youth, Youm7 reported Tuesday.
The Dahshour Housing Project, south of 6 October city, is one of several housing projects President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi launched in cooperation with the United Arab Emirates-based Arabtec construction company and the MEA.
The units were constructed over 220 feddans and include 667 five-storey buildings for housing and public services.
The EMA started the project in 2013 after UAE provided Egypt with financial aid allocated to build 50 housing units in Egypt for the low-income people and the youth.
In May 2015, former Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab delivered housing units to 1,500 low-income families in Cairo’s Badr City.
