The Diocese of Dumaguete, in cooperation with the city government, will present the first batch of housing units Friday to families displaced by tropical storm “Sendong”.
Fr. Burton Villarmente, coordinator of the Social Action Center of the Diocese of Dumaguete, said the first 12 houses will be completed Friday and handed over to a pre-screened batch of typhoon victims, who had complied with the requirements of the program.
Constructed on the 5,000-hectare lot in Barangay Bajumpandan donated by the city, the structures are part of the original 115 that the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, through the National Secretariat for Social Action, agreed to subsidize.
