Priority Human Settlements and Housing Development Areas (PHSHDAs)
Welcome to the Breaking New Ground (BNG) newsletter of the Ministry of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation. This newsletter will keep you informed about the support
given to communities in distress during Covid-19 lockdown.
The Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation, Lindiwe Sisulu has declared 136 Priority Human Settlements and Housing Development Areas (PHSHDAs) across the entire country. The intention is to ensure redress regarding the pre-1994 spatial plan, revitalising towns and cities and strengthening the livelihoods of households.
This week, our country reached a sad moment in the progression of the coronavirus pandemic, as we recorded our 219th death from the disease.
Every life lost is a tragedy.
These 219 people who passed away had families, they had dependents, friends and colleagues.
Their lives were cut short by a virus that has caused human and economic devastation across the world.
