Compostela Valley Province - The National Housing Authority (NHA) turned over housing projects to 414 beneficiaries at Sitio Lower Ulip, Poblacion, Monkayo, Compostela Valley on July 11, 2017.
Provincial Inter-Agency Committee Vice Chair and Vice Gov. Manuel “Way Kurat” Zamora spearheaded the turnover ceremony in behalf of Gov. Jayvee Tyron Uy.
The 414 houses are part of the 14,258 permanent houses built in the province for the Typhoon Pablo survivors whose houses were totally damaged. It also includes those whose areas of residence are in the “No Build Zone” area declared by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and the Mines and Geo-Sciences Bureau (MGB). In Monkayo, there are already a total of 6,832 housing units.
It can be recalled that Typhoon Pablo made its landfall on December 2012. It was considered as the strongest tropical cyclone to ever hit the southern Philippine island of Mindanao, leaving hundreds of dead bodies and million worth of properties damaged, particularly in Compostela Valley and Davao Oriental provinces.
