Housing projects in bad shape – Robredo


SHE may no longer be the head of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council but Vice President Ma. Leonor “Leni” Robredo has vowed to pursue housing programs, noting that the housing problem is enormous.

Robredo expressed these sentiments as the guest speaker of the.

“I don’t have any plan to stop from my advocacy in housing, particularly now that I have seen the enormity of the problem and the potential solutions to it. I am saying this because the government housing projects are in bad shape, and yet those are considered accomplishment because the gauge is the number of houses built,” Robredo said in a speech at Employers Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP) meeting in Taguig City Thursday.

“Even if you built so many houses…if you did not do anything to improve the lives of those who will reside in those houses, then that’s not an accomplishment,” she added.

    The extreme poverty and homelessness of millions of Filipino families nationwide due to neglect, since independence from the USA with lack of planning for the country and it passes through the previous leader of the country such as Macapagal, Marcos, and the followed leader. The present government should face the reality that they should built more affordable decent housing projects ASAP. Filipinos only earn 10,000 pesos a month, the affordable rent should only be P 300 to 500 based on the majorities earnings. If “Jesus is alive I am sure his heart is Bleeding to see the extreme poverty in the Philippines. It is really unacceptable in HUMAN RIGHTS!!!!!!

  3. Why doesn’t she put the blame for the state of the housing on the Aquino administration where it belongs ?

    It was her liberal party who spent the last 6 years stealing the budget instead of their jobs.
