The Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC) Board of Directors has approved the resettlement project for 470 families currently residing under insecure conditions inside the walled city of Intramuros, our priceless national historical landmark.
The Intramuros is also home to San Agustin Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Through a community-driven housing approach, the families have voluntarily decided to resettle in safe and secure homes in a new community chosen by them.
The project has the twin aim of preserving important national cultural heritage while upholding people’s right to adequate housing.The project was presented by Settlements Management Group Vice President Bobby Flores.
