CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Feb. 23 (PIA) -- The city government is set to build and will manage the construction of 700 houses in the Calaanan Relocation site for families who lost their houses in Cagayan de Oro City.

“This is a different set of houses aside from the 1,500 houses started by the Habitat for Humanity, and the 300 houses promised by the Filipino-Chinese Community,” Mayor Vicente Y. Emano clarified.

He said that when the houses are completed, the transfer of those families who are presently living in the tent city are given priority. However, other families who lost their houses need not worry because all are included in the relocation, and thus shall get houses as well, the mayor assured the survivors of typhoon Sendong.

Meanwhile, there are now three tent cities in Calaanan established by the city government through the support of Shelter Box and the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

The tents serve as temporary shelters for the current occupants until the construction of permanent homes are completed. The houses will be constructed just a few hundred meters south of the tent city. (EOR-PIA 10)
