Typhoon victims get shelter repair assistance

Lingayen, Pangasinan (22 January) -- A total of 393 families affected by typhoon Pepeng have benefitted from the disaster risk mitigation program of the Habitat for Humanity-Philippines in partnership with the province and concerned local government units.

Provincial Housing and Homesite Regulation Officer Alvin L. Bigay said the families from the towns of Rosales, Villasis, Sison, Bayambang and Urdaneta City, received P7,000 each.

Gov. Amado T. Espino, Jr. thanked not only the Habitat team but also all the organizations and individuals who extended support to the typhoon victims.

The outpouring of support from concerned citizens, he noted, signified that the spirit of cooperativism or "bayanihan" among Filipinos is very much alive.

Bigay said the province sought the assistance of shelter agencies to help the affected families.

He said that the province and the NGO conducted an ocular inspection and assessment of the damaged houses in the six heavily affected areas of Pangasinan. Bautista town is under re-validation.

The program, called Shelter Repair Kit Assistance, involves distribution of construction materials to families whose houses were partially or totally damaged by disasters. This includes roofing materials, flexiboards, lumber, nails and other construction equipment like hammer, handsaw and screw drivers. (PIO/PIA Pangasinan) [top]
