House donors for TS endong victims in Iligan pouring in

by Melvin T. Anggot

ILIGAN CITY, Lanao del Norte, Jan. 18 -- Responding to the call for help, several groups pledged to give housing units to Iligan flood survivors caused by tropical storm Sendong.

Foremost is the San Miguel Corporation which pledged to donate 2,500 house units valuing at P500 million.

The organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) also committed to give 500 house units. Another 200 houses was earlier pledged by GMA Network, and another 30 units has been committed by the Phil. Economic Zone Authority.

The Development Bank of Philippines (DBP), on the other hand, also pledged to donate Seven (7) houses.

This is on top of the 1,600 units to be constructed at the relocation site at Barangay Sta. Elena, this city.

Unprecedented in the long history of Iligan, typhoon ĎSendongí sent a devastating deluge in the city on December 17, claiming hundreds of lives and wasted properties, infrastructure and agriculture to the tune of more than P600 million.

Iligan is no longer drowned by flood, but by tears and troubles of recovering back to normalcy, said city Mayor Lawrence Ll. Cruz. (CIO/PIA-10)
