Not less than 300 newly completed houses in the Calaanan Relocation Site are set to be formally turned over to the beneficiary families during the House and Lot Awarding Ceremony, June 8, 2012 9:00 a.m. at the Calaanan Covered Court, according to Mayor Vicente “Dongkoy” Y. Emano.
Besides Mayor Emano, members of the city council, barangay captains, and department heads of City Hall, other honored guests are expected to attend like Leonilo Escalada, chief operating officer of Habitat for Humanity Philippines; Mr. Efren Uy of the Filipino-Chinese Community; Eng’r Jose Gatus of the Oro Habitat; and DSWD regional director Atty. Araceli Solamillo.
The Mayor, again, reiterated his assurance that not a single cent shall be asked from the beneficiaries as these houses and lots are all free for the Sendong survivors, and without regard of political affiliation or leaning.
The series of turnovers of completed houses in the Indahag and Calaanan Relocation Sites is the result of Mayor Emano’s determination to see all survivors in their own new permanent homes by August of this year.
