Georgia Group Building Homes, Peace in North Korea
by Trevor Williams
A Georgia non-profit group on Nov. 11 broke ground in North Korea on a project aimed at building homes and harmony in the reclusive Asian nation.
With help from U.S. volunteers, the Americus-based Fuller Center for Housing will work with the North Korean government to construct a 50-unit complex in a small farming community outside the capital city of Pyongyang.
The project will help alleviate a housing shortage caused by a 2006 typhoon that destroyed some 30,000 homes across the country.
