PGMA inspects new housing project for poor families

Manila (24 January) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo visited recently Cabuyao, Laguna to inspect the newly-built housing units for poor families displaced from the railway tracks to make way for the SouthRail project

Always at the forefront of defending the interest and welfare of the poor, the Chief Executive also supervised the medical and dental mission of her successful "Serbisyo Muna" project where 1,276 indigent families were given Philhealth card.

Assisting her in distributing Philhealth cards were Vice-President Noli de Castro, Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, Laguna Governor Teresita Lazaro, Rep. Justin Chipeco and Cabuyao Mayor Nila Aguillo

During a Pulong Bayan officially opening the visit at the Southville housing project, President Arroyo launched the Botika sa Barangay project aimed at providing half-priced medicines.

The Southville Housing project is a 53.337-hectare resettlement site in Barangays Marinig, Niyugan and Banay-banay for families displaced by the PNRNorthrail-Southrail Linkage project from the rail tracks in Cabuyao and Makati City.

If fully developed, the housing project is expected to compose 8,003 homelots.

In her Cabuyao statement, the President announced the approval of the release of P500 Million to help the indigent families pay their Philhealth premiums.

In the same occasion, she approved the release of P1 Billion to finance the on-going relocation of families affected by the railways clearing operations for the rail linkage development project that is expected to ease traffic congestion in Metro Manila. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
