TUBOD, Lanao del Norte – Forty-four (44) families whose houses were ravaged by fire and flood incidents received financial/housing assistance from the National Housing Authority (NHA) on December 29, 2021, at the Multi-Purpose Hall, Capitol Grounds, Pigcarangan, Tubod.
The 44 qualified beneficiaries are from the municipalities of Kapatagan, Maigo, and Tangcal.
Through the initiative of Senator Christopher Lawrence ‘Bong’ Go, the release of financial aid was made possible under the NHA Emergency Housing Assistance Program (EHAP), implemented pursuant to NHA Board Resolution No. 5430, aimed to aid households and families affected by calamities.
Madeleine Gilda S. Abellera, District Manager of NHA 10, said, “These are the beneficiaries endorsed by each municipality. The National Government is ready to help and cater to more fire and flood victims as long as the documentary requirements are all intact.”
“Those with totally damaged houses received P30,000 while partially damaged house owners received P20,000 housing assistance,” Abellera added after the distribution of EHAP funds.
Mark Joseph Pareja, a farm owner with a partially damaged home from Maigo, said, “Tungod kay na wash out sa baha atong January ang akoang negosyo, dako na kaayo ni nga tabang sa akong pamilya. Maayo ra ang among new year.”
(Since the floods washed out my business in January, it’s a huge help to my family. We will have a great new year.)
“Atong May 8, gikaon sa sunog ang tibuok namong balay. Maayo ra gyud kay naay tabang na ihatag karon ang NHA para sa amoa,” Jessica Cagoco, a resident of Poblacion, Kapatagan, said. PIO-LDN
