300 additional houses to rise in Canitoan-A A +A
Monday, June 25, 2012
THREE hundred houses will soon be constructed within the 3.5-hectare land at the Cagayan de Oro Resettlement and Socialized Housing Project (CDORSHP) Phase 2-B in Sitio Calaanan, Barangay Canitoan.
The project will be implemented through the joint efforts of the City Government and Habitat for Humanity Philippines.
Mayor Vicente Emano on Monday led the groundbreaking ceremony at the site together with officials and representatives of Habitat, city councilors and City Hall department heads.
“I thanked Habitat especially its donor, Lutheran World Relief International, for the additional houses for our brothers and sisters who were victims of typhoon Sendong. Cagayan de Oro cannot rise back from the tragedy without the great support of Habitat,” Emano said. (CIO)
