AT LEAST 50 indigent families in Sultan Mastura, Maguindanao are set to benefit from the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao's (Barmm) P23-million housing project that comes with a solar power light and water component.
The groundbreaking for the construction of 50-unit core shelters in Sitio Tamigin, Tariken village, Sultan Mastura was held Thursday, March 4.
The shelters will be built under the Office of Barmm Chief Minister's Kapayapaan sa Pamayanan (Kapyanan) project.
"This project is part of Kapyanan's dream to uplift the living conditions of the poorest of the poor in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao," said Engineer Abdulnasser Usman, the deputy project manager, who led Thursday's groundbreaking ceremony.
Usman was joined in the ceremony by Sultan Mastura Vice Mayor Julhanie Tumbas Jr., Tariken Village Chairperson Nasrudin Ali and Fahad Sing, representative of Dawing Construction firm.
Tumbas said the recipients are deserving of the housing project because they were the ones greatly affecteg height of the conflict between the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the national government.
Kapyanan is one of the flagship programs of Barmm's office of the chief minister. (SunStar Zamboanga)
