P20M housing fund for Davao City flood victims

BY JOANNA C. BALANZA

Survivors of last year’s tragic flood that killed 34 people in Davao City may no longer fear a similar incident: the Davao City government would soon implement a P20 million housing fund for THE survivors whose houses along the Matina Creek and other affected areas were swept away by the June 29, 2010 floods.
Davao City councilor Arnolfo Cabling said the Davao City Council has approved a P7 million counterpart fund to the P20 million the National Housing Authority (NHA) released for the flood victims.
Two hundred units of low-cost housing at P100,000 each for the surviving families would be built from the fund in the Los Amigos, Tugbok resettlement site of the local government.
On the night of June 29 last year, rampaging waters, dumped by a freak tornado upland of the city, overflowed the Matina Creek, sweeping houses mostly along the bank of the creek.
Thirty four bodies were recovered a day later as Dabawenyos woke up to face up to the worst flooding that hit the city. Three areas—Matina, Bangkal and Talomo— were inundated by the flood that in some areas reached rooftops. The worst hit was Matina.

City councilor Arnolfo Ricardo Cabling said the fund would be utilized to build 100 houses at P100,000 each for 100 victims of the June flood that swept through four barangays in the southern part of the city. Thirty people died in the flood which temporarily displaced more than 10,000 people.

     The houses would be built in the city-government-owned 20-hectare relocation site in Los Amigos, Tugbok district.

     Cabling said he was informed about the fund by National housing Authority (NHA) regional manager Carol Angel, who had been instructed by the vice president to allocate the fund for housing of the victims of the Davao City flood.

     He said on top of the P10million, NHA would also be setting aside P47 million in additional fund for site development of the Los Amigos relocation area.

Earlier, City Planning and Development Office (CPDO) acting chief Roberto Alabado III said about 80 families who lost their houses to the flood have started to transfer to Los Amigos, after being assigned 80-sqm lots in the relocation site.
