Up to 800 families of informal settlers have just received a grandious Christmas treat after being given their own home in the country's biggest resettlement site.
The 11-hectare land located in Barangay Bignay, Valenzuela City named as the Disiplina Village is expected to accomodate up to 3,000 families once the construction of the housing units is finished.
Additionally, the village is also packed with great amenities such a clinics, convenience store and also a school.
With the site being relocated in Valenzuela, a city within the metro, the government expects that families will no longer have troubles with finding jobs too.
"Kung dati-rati ang relocation sa labas ng Metro Manila pero nahihirapan ang mga lumilipat doon dahil malayo sa kanilang pamilya, malayo sa trabaho, malayo sa kanilang mga mahal sa buhay, napagdesisyonan ng pamunuan ng lungsod ng Valenzuela na dapat dito lang kayo sa Valenzuela city," Valenzuela mayor Rex Gatchalian said.
Former Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) chair Vice President Leni Robredo has pushed for such projects during her short term. However, she hopes that such projects will continue despite her recent resignation.
"Ito po yung ating mga binubuo, yung mga local government units na may magagandang proyekto," Robredo shared.
