Binay leads groundbreaking of Leyte housing projects


Vice President Jejomar Binay will lead the groundbreaking of the MRDC Greenland Townhomes financed by Pag-IBIG Fund in Tacloban, Leyte today.

The project comprises 900 housing units for government and private employees who were victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda. The project will be developed in five phases where each phase will have 180 units.

“I am confident that through our concerted efforts, we will be able to fast track the building of quality and climate-resilient homes here in Leyte,” Binay said.

Binay will also lead the unveiling of a project marker for the Metro Ormoc Community Multipurpose Cooperative (OCCCI) Housing Project in Barangay Dolores, Ormoc City.

That project covers 278 housing units for members of the OCCCI who are mostly survivors of Yolanda.

While in Leyte, Binay will also lead the unveiling of a marker to commemorate Pag-IBIG’s donation to rebuild the Rural Health Center in Tanauan that was destroyed by the super typhoon.

Pag-IBIG donated P10 million to rebuild the old one-story center into a 2-story hospital.

Binay will also lead the unveiling of the project marker of Pag-IBIG Fund’s donation to Jaro 1 Central School in Jaro, Leyte.

The elementary school is 36 kilometers away from Tacloban and was totally damaged by typhoon Yolanda. Pag-IBIG donated P10 million to cover the construction of a new two-story building with four classrooms and four comfort rooms as well as the repair of the seven remaining damaged classrooms.

“Aside from the housing units, we also made it a point to help rebuild schools and health facilities,” Binay said.
