Sun.Star Pampanga - - REGION! -

CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO---The Depart­ment of So­cial Wel­fare and De­vel­op­ment (DSWD) Field Of­fice III of­fi­cially tied up with the Armed Forces of the Philip­pines (AFP) in im­ple­ment­ing the Core Shel­ter As­sis­tance yes­ter­day.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion project dubbed as "KiSLAP ng CSAP" (Kik­i­los ang San­data­hang Lakas, Aa­ga­pay sa Paba­hay ng Core Shel­ter As­sis­tance Pro­gram) aims to fin­ish the re­main­ing units in Kain­o­mayan Vil­lage.

The two par­ties signed the pledge of com­mit­ment fol­lowed by a ground­break­ing cer­e­mony where AFP ex­pressed their com­mit­ment to the project.

"Max­i­mized at ta­la­gang may best ef­fort kami, kung kailan­gang hindi kami mat­u­log, hindi kami matu­tu­log basta ma­g­awa nam­ing We will max­i­mize and ex­ert best ef­forts. If we do not have to sleeo, we will do so to fin­ish this project", said Lt. Col. Fer­nando G. Balona.

A to­tal of 20 troops will be de­ployed to con­struct 105 units in Kain­o­mayan Vil­lage. The units are ex­pected to be com­pleted within 30 work­ing days.

Strug­gling for work­force, Mu­nic­i­pal So­cial Wel­fare and De­vel­op­ment Of­fi­cer Ed­wina Sibug is very thank­ful for the project.

" We are ac­tu­ally hav­ing dif­fi­cul­ties mo­bi­liz­ing the ben­e­fi­cia­ries es­pe­cially the el­derly who do not rel­a­tives who can work. The AFP’s as­sis­tance is truly a big help," she said.

Core Shel­ter As­sis­tance is one of the projects un­der the Emer­gency Re­cov­ery and Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Pro­gram of DSWD that pro­vides ma­te­rial as­sis­tance to be used in con­struc­tion of re­set­tle­ment houses for the sur­vivors of Typhoon Kiko in 2009.

Present in the launch was the DSWD-3 staff led by As­sis­tant Re­gional Di­rec­tor Venus F. Re­buldela, the AFP staff led by Balona and Capt. Hazel T. Ga­bor, LGU of­fi­cials and per­son­nel lead by Mayor Doris Maniquis and Sibug and neigh­bor­hood association of shel­ter as­sis­tance ben­e­fi­cia­ries.
