Catamarca: National Government will provide help to rebuild the affected areas
Argentina, January 30, 2014
Germán Nivello, Nation’s Housing Development Undersecretary, said that “the Government will provide funding to quickly build houses for families who lost everything” by the avalanche in Sijan and El Rodeo, west of Catamarca.
The Planning Ministry official traveled to the province by decision of the President, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, with the aim of bringing solutions to the people affected by the avalanche of mud and rocks that a week ago left 14 victims, most of them in the tourist village of El Rodeo.
“Quickly, we will implement the construction of housing for families who lost everything in the flood,” said Nivello before returning to Buenos Aires.
During his visit, he toured works in progress along with the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development of Catamarca, Octavio Gutierrez.
