Heroic legend created in rehabilitation campaign in North and South Hamgyong

The core Party members of the capital city, in hearty response to the appeal of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, turned out in the campaign to repair in one fell swoop the damage from the great natural disaster that had hit North and South Hamgyong provinces and carried through the noble intention of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea.

Thanks to the over 70-day struggle waged by the divisions of Party members from the capital city, splendid model standard villages of socialist rural construction have appeared and huge rehabilitation projects including road repair and river improvement have wonderfully been concluded in the shortest possible period in the afflicted areas of Hongwon, Riwon and Hochon counties in South Hamgyong Province and Kim Chaek City and Orang County of North Hamgyong Province.

As soon as they arrived at the areas, they launched into house building before arranging their lodging quarters, and opened up the route of advance for rehabilitation as roads, bridges and railways were severely destroyed.

The members of the 1st division finished the spreading of more than 6 300 cubic metres of gravel and sand, cut over 10 000 cubic metres of earth and cleared the sites in a day in the stricken areas of Hongwon and Riwon. They then pressed on with the construction project as they expedited different processes like concrete placing for foundations and brick-laying for walls in a three-dimensional way.

As a result, more than 140 modern dwelling houses were built in Unpho and Kyongpho workers' districts of Hongwon County and Haksadae-ri of Riwon County in a matter of 18 days after ground-breaking.

The members of the 2nd division arrived in the disaster-stricken area in Kim Chaek City through hundreds of kilometres of day and night forced march. They first opened up the transport route, took measures for the provision of building materials and braved manifold difficulties to staunchly push forward with construction projects.

Their fierce offensive operation unfolded happy fairyland villages in Chundong-ri, Unho-ri and Sokho-ri in Kim Chaek City in a short period. They wonderfully completed dwelling houses with the mind of building their own native houses and villages and thus successfully accomplished their tasks before the October holiday.

The divisions of Party members from the capital city who defended the 75th founding anniversary of the WPK with proud labour feats proceeded to rush to areas which had most badly been damaged and lagged behind in the reconstruction.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, speaking at the military parade celebrating the 75th founding anniversary of the WPK, highly praised the members of the divisions as patriots as they volunteered, after completing their tasks at the rehabilitation project sites, to go to other disaster-hit areas, rather than returning to Pyongyang and their beloved families, and extended militant greetings and thanks to them.

The 1st division moved to a ravaged area in Hochon County to rebuild damaged roads extending for 8 kilometres in three days and finish the building of low-storey dwelling houses for dozens of families in a little over a fortnight and buckled down to river improvement and bridge construction.

The 2nd division not only completed house construction but the paving of roads extending for thousands of metres at the reconstruction site in Orang County, before planting more than 900 fruit trees and over 400 roadside trees and laying turfs.

During the 24-7 reconstruction campaign of performing miracles and feats, splendid single-storey and low-storey houses for hundreds of families were built in the areas of Hongwon, Riwon and Hochon counties, Kim Chaek City and Orang County and roads, rivers and streams were restored to their original state.

True to the call of the Party Central Committee for sharing ordeals with the people by mixing with them and getting closer to them in the face of difficulties, the Party members from the capital city warmly comforted those affected people and helped them both materially and morally.

Despite the tight schedule, they repaired dwelling houses and public buildings in the neighbouring villages.
