• Housing village awarded to ‘Yolanda’ victims


    TACLOBAN CITY, Leyte: Four hundred new houses were awarded to family-beneficiaries who were hardest hit by super-typhoon Yolanda when SM Supermall’s biggest SM Cares Village was turned over to the survivors. The village will be called “Pope Francis-CFC ANCOP Canada Community – SM Cares Village.” It is the biggest of the four SM Cares housing projects, as the other villages only have 200 houses each. The first village in Bogo, Cebu was turned over to beneficiaries in November 2014, while the second village, in Iloilo City, was inaugurated in October 2015. The fourth and last village, in Ormoc City, is undergoing construction and will be turned over in July this year. The SM Cares Village in Barangay New Kawayan in Tacloban is the third batch in the SM Cares Village housing project, which was launched in the aftermath of Yolanda in 2013.
