Ford Blue Village opens in Uitenhage

JUN 8, 2018

Informal shack dwellers in Langa, Uitenhage, have been given respite from the upcoming winter weather with the hand-over of 14 wooden houses that local residents will use as transit homes until they receive formal housing from the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality.

As the third phase of what has become known as Ford's Blue Village, a total of 30 units are being built by project partner and local non-profit organisation, the Al Fidaa Foundation, to provide much-needed relief from impoverished living conditions.
