Survivors set to leave SRP-A A +A
Friday, March 21, 2014
THIRTY-FIVE families currently housed at the tent city in South Road Properties (SRP) are set to go back to their places in Eastern Visayas tomorrow.
But 17 families have opted to stay in Cebu for good. Right now, 54 families are still living at the facility.
Three months after they arrived in Cebu, Nobin Sabusap and his wife Josephine will finally go back to their place in Tacloban. They arrived in Cebu a day after typhoon Yolanda hit their place.
The Cebu City Government had only allowed the typhoon survivors to stay at the facility installed by the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) for three months.
Tent City Committee head and former City Councilor Joy Pesquera said the City had already done several interventions for the survivors.
Seminars on human trafficking, disaster preparedness, livelihood trainings and stress debriefing had been given to them to make sure they are ready to start life anew.
Two C130 planes of the Philippine Air Force (PAF) will transport the survivors to Tacloban on Sunday morning.
A van at the Tacloban airport will transport them to their respective town.
