Be part of BAHAYnihan.
Some families in Albay are still living in evacuation centers several days after losing their houses during a recent typhoon.
Given this situation, Vice President Leni Robredo announced on Facebook about plans to launch a housing project for the landslide victims. Under the BAHAYnihan project, she hopes the new houses will be ready before Christmas.
“Join us as we build houses for those who lost their homes to the lahar flow in Guinobatan, Albay. Until now, they are still stuck in evacuation centers because they have nowhere to go,” Robredo said in a Facebook.
“We will be using part of the Kaya Natin Fund from the donations for the construction materials,” she said.
Robredo said they will work with the Bicol University College of Engineering and the United Architects of the Philippines Daraga-Cagsawa Chapter and Elliptical Chapter and JCI Legazpi City “to make sure that the design and workmanship of the houses will not be shortchanged.”
She also thanked the local government officials of Guinobatan, Albay for providing the relocation site and taking care of the necessary preparations.
Robredo also called for volunteers in building the houses for the Albay families affected by the landslides. An online training for volunteers will be held next week.
“We need warm bodies who can provide labor so that the families will have their houses by Christmas. We are scheduling an online training for volunteers next week,” she said. “However, we do need to comply with Covid protocols so please check our official facebook page for announcements,” she said.
