Sendong-affected families continue to line up at the office of the Estate Management Division (EMD) in order to avail of the city government’s relocation program.
As of January 2012, EMD accommodated 696 Sendong-affected beneficiaries for interview while 188 interviewees were recorded between the 1st to 8th of February.
The victims are from Barangays Macasandig, Carmen, Consolacion, Balulang, Nazareth, Tablon, Cugman, Canitoan, Kauswagan, Bonbon, Puntod, and Gusa.
According to EMD Chief Ms. Virginia Diguinon, their office is open and will continue to accept all Sendong-affected applicants who wish to avail of the city government’s relocation program.
Diguinon clarified though that all interviewees will still undergo the usual meticulous process of evaluation and validation to make sure that the free houses and lots offered by the city government will go to those who truly are victims of the recent calamity.
