Some 240 informal settler families (ISFs) have been relocated to medium-rise resettlement buildings in Cagayan de Oro City.
The turnover rite on Wednesday, May 18, was led by Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD), Secretary Eduardo Del Rosario, Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC) President Arnolfo Ricardo Cabling and Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno.
The resettlement project located inside the five-hectare Balubal Heights Subdivision Federation Inc. in Barangay Balubal is a joint undertaking of DHSUD, SHFC and the Cagayan de Oro City local government.
Apart from residents residing in danger zone and calamity-prone areas, Dell Rosario said the beneficiaries also include residents who survived the wrath of Typhoon Sendong in 2011.
Del Rosario said the beneficiaries can now have a fresh start in “sustainable and affordable homes they can call their own.”
The latest development in the housing sector will serve as “another testament of how the Duterte administration gives importance to its goal of providing decent, sustainable, yet affordable homes to Filipinos, especially to the underprivileged,” he added. READ MORE
