Families affected by Sendong to be given housing assistance

by Jumalyn J. Picato

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Misamis Oriental, Jan. 12 (PIA) –- Some 29,536 families who were displaced/affected by tropical storm ‘Sendong’ in the cities of Iligan and Cagayan de Oro will benefit from the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council - National Housing Authority (HUDCC-NHA) permanent housing assistance.

Froilan R. Kampitan, assistant general manager, HUDCC-NHA, revealed this during the National Shelter Cluster Summit held in Grand Caprice, Limketkai Center, yesterday.

Vice President Jejomar Binay said not only families whose houses that have been totally damaged will be relocated but also residents residing in danger zone areas.

Through the use of market segmentation, the HUDCC-NHA, in collaboration with the DSWD, will finalize the segmentation of beneficiaries, where a total number of formal and informal sectors will be identified if they are currently living in dangerous or non-dangerous areas.

Victims that will be included in the list of informal sectors are those temporarily residing in evacuation centers (ECs) where the DSWD has data and those living outside the ECs but still are affected by Sendong.

On the other hand, formal sectors will be recognized by HUDCC-NHA with the help of the Home Development Mutual Fund (HDMF) and the Social Security System, Secretary Dinky Soliman of DSWD said.

Soliman added that the DSWD will also be putting up grievance (Reklamo) desk in all evacuation centers which will be made up of multi-sectoral groups, non-government organizations (NGOs), peoples organizations (POs), and assisted by the local government unit.

The permanent housing project of sustainable communities comprises of health center, school building, police outpost, wet market, multi-purpose covered court, and material recovery facilities.

Meanwhile, in an assessment report gathered by Secretary Robredo, DILG has identified some six non-livable areas in Cagayan de Oro City and another 16 in Iligan City. (PIA-10)
