Pyongyang, September 11 (KCNA) -- All the people of the DPRK have turned out in a struggle for reconstruction of disaster areas in the northern part of North Hamgyong Province recently hit hard by stormy heavy rainfalls.

The Workers' Party of Korea made an appealing call "Let us achieve the miraculous victory of converting misfortune into favorable conditions on the front of recovering from the flood damage in the northern part of North Hamgyong Province with the tremendous might of single-minded unity!"

Encouraged by this call, people in the flood-afflicted areas and all other parts of the country rose up in a drive to heal the flood damage.

Amid a national mobilization drive launched to concentrate the country's manpower and material and technical potentials on the flood damage rehabilitation, many construction units are rapidly moving into the disaster areas from major economic fronts where they had conducted the 200-day campaign.

They include soldier-builders and shock brigade members who were engaged in the construction of Ryomyong Street, Sepho Tableland Stockbreeding Base, Hyesan-Samjiyon railways and waterway project in South Hwanghae Province.

Meanwhile, officials and employees at the Cabinet, ministries and national institutions and industrial establishments and cooperative organizations across the country have zealously volunteered to take part in the flood damage rehabilitation drive.

The railway transport sector is now striving to ensure the fast transport of building materials and equipment as well as groups of builders to the flood-hit areas. -0-
