NHA builds 8,624 houses for ‘Sendong’ survivors
The National Housing Authority (NHA) has built 8,624 houses for the survivors of the tropical storm “Sendong”.
The agency said in a statement that it is also set to build 801 additional houses
Meanwhile, the NHA said that 4,784 families affected by typhoon “Pablo” were provided with Housing Materials Assistance (HOMA).
This is aside from the 17,480 homes that will be provided in Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley, it said.
For the six regions devastated by super typhoon “Yolanda,” the NHA through partnerships with other government agencies, local government units, non-government organizations, and the private sector, will construct 60,000 permanent houses.
The houses will follow various design parameters and the “Build-Back Better Policy” to ensure resiliency against calamities and other elements.
In Bohol province, 38,801 families whose houses were damaged by the powerful earthquake last October have received a total of P388 million HOMA from the NHA.
Meanwhile, 7,248 families displaced by last year’s conflict between government troops and Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) rebels in Zamboanga City also received home material assistance from the shelter agency.
