NHA AFFIRMS SUPPORT TO THE CITY GOVT’S POST EARTHQUAKE RECOVERY EFFORTS
KIDAPAWAN CITY – THE NATIONAL Housing Authority affirmed its steadfast support for the post-earthquake recovery efforts being undertaken by the City Government.
NHA XII Regional Director Erasme Madlos relayed this message to City Mayor Joseph Evangelista and the people of Kidapawan in the celebration of its 22nd Charter Day on February 12, 2020.
Madlos served as the Keynote Speaker representing NHA General Manager Marcelino Escalada Jr. for the occasion.
The NHA, said Madlos, is determined on pursuing the construction of 1,700 new housing units that will served as the new shelters for the October 2019 earthquake displaced families living in high risk areas identified as unsafe for dwelling by the Mines and Geosciences Bureau of the DENR.
These houses will be given to beneficiaries for free.
She praised Mayor Evangelista’s quick initiative in bringing normalcy back to the lives of affected families by working with the NHA in providing new homes for them.
These houses will be constructed along several identified relocation sites in Barangays Ilomavis, Perez, Balabag, Nuangan and Indangan.
An initial number of new housing units will be turned over by the City Government and the NHA to beneficiaries in Ilomavis on February 24, 2020, barely 4 months after the quakes struck and displaced families.
Aside from free new housing units, the City Government is working with other government line agencies and the private sector in providing needed livelihood assistance as well as psychosocial interventions to bring normalcy back to earthquake displaced families. ##(cio/ajpme/lkro)
