VP Leni to lead turnover of housing kits for 250 CHICKS area families

The Cardinal family of Purok Lubi in Brgy Gil Montilla, Sipalay City, stand on where their house used to be before raging waters of Typhoon Odette washed it away. They will receive a Shelter Starter kit from Vice President Leni Robredo on Saturday.*

Vice President Leni Robredo will be in southern Negros Occidental Saturday, Feb. 5, for the ceremonial turnover of shelter starter kits to 250 families, whose homes were destroyed by super Typhoon Odette in December last year.

This was disclosed by former Gov. Rafael Coscolluela, campaign manager of Robredo for Negros Occidental and concurrent provincial chair of the Robredo People’s Council.

Coscolluela said the Office of the Vice President will undertake the project with the Negrense Volunteers for Change led by Millie Kilayko.

From the Bacolod-Silay Airport, the vice president’s party will proceed to Sipalay City, where the turnover program for 50 family-recipients will be held at Purok Lubi, Barangay Gil Montilla.

She will then travel to Barangay Mambugsay in Cauayan town for a similar turnover ceremony for 45 families, Coscolluela said.

Also to receive housing materials from Robredo are 50 families from Kabankalan City, 45 from Hinoba-an and 30 families each from Candoni and Ilog towns, the former governor said.

A total of P6,250,000 was allocated for the shelter starter kits, the OVP said.

Meanwhile, thousands of “pink warriors ” are expected to join the caravan Saturday during the opening of the Robredo campaign center in Hinigaran town, RPC- Negros Occidental operations head Edwin Nacionales, said.

Nacionales said they are expecting a big turnout as many Bacolod-based pink volunteers already signified interest to join the activity that will also be attended by local political leaders and multi-sectoral groups.*
