PNoy to visit Pangasinan December 7

By Danny O Sagun

Dagupan City (03 December) -- President Aquino is scheduled to visit Pangasinan on Tuesday, December 7, his first as Chief Executive, to inaugurate the Core Shelter project in Bani town.

Mr. Aquino is expected to arrive at 10 a.m. at the project site in the mountain slopes of barangay Dacap Sur where 100 housing units were ingeniously built thru the combined efforts and resources of the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the municipal government, the UN World Food Programme (UNWFP) and the 600 beneficiaries for their "sweat equity" in helping the "new village" to rise. The beneficiaries were victims of typhoon Emong which devastated the province in May last year.

The new village is called "Burubor ni Ayat" (Spring of Love).

DSWD provided P7 million for the project, while the municipal government provided the 5-hectare lot including site development and salary of skilled workers. The UN WFP provided the Food for Work in the form of rice allocation amounting to some P2.1 million, according to DSWD Regional Director Leonardo C. Reynoso.

Social Welfare Secretary Corazon "Dinky" Soliman is expected to brief the President on the project.

Mayor Marcelo Navarro envisioned the project as an eco-village which, he said, other institutions may copy it for their own human resettlement projects. (PIA Pangasinan) [top]
