COTABATO CITY -- Officials of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) on Tuesday turned over 150 permanent housing units to internally displaced families of the 2017 Marawi siege that are staying at an evacuation center in Saguiaran, Lanao del Sur.
ARMM Gov. Mujiv Hataman, who led the turnover ceremonies, said the project, coursed through the Bangsamoro Regional Inclusive Development for Growth and Empowerment (ARMM-BRIDGE) initiative, came in with food supplies and livelihood packages for the beneficiaries.
“The PHP300 million housing project gives emphasis that the ARMM government, though undergoing transition, continues to take care of its constituents,” Hataman said in a statement Wednesday.
“We will make sure that in the forthcoming Bangsamoro regional government, you will not be left behind. The projects that are intended for you will go to you,” he added.
The governor said more socio-economic and development programs are in the pipeline for the Marawi siege affected families in the coming months. (PNA)
