Three Tent Cities in Calaanan

There are now 3 Tent Cities in Calaanan established by the city through the support of Shelter Box and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).


Tent City 1 which contains 360 temporary shelters was the first one to be set up and availed by flood affected families. Tent City 2 which has 250 tents, also donated by Shelter box, has just been set up in the Calaanan covered court, while Tent City 3 has 130 temporary shelters given by the DSWD.

These Tent Cities were some of the areas inspected by President Benigno Aquino III with Mayor Vicente Y. Emano and other local officials during his recent visit here.
