Mayoralty aspirant awards houses to Sasmuan folks
SASMUAN - In a bid to address the housing woes in her hometown, comebacking Mayor Catalina Bagasina, in partnership with Sapang Pari Integrated Development Corporation (SPIDC), yesterday awarded houses to deserving families here.
Ten Sasmueño families, who were the first beneficiaries under SPDIC’s low-cost housing program, received onestorey single residential units located in Barangay San Antonio this town.
Bagasina said the beneficiaries were part of those families who became homeless and were relocated after their old houses were allegedly r ecl ai med.
“I heard the concerns of the residents whose houses were reclaimed so I decided to buy lots from SPIDC and have the houses built so I can provide decent housing to the people,” Cabrera said.
Bagasina, a former partylist congresswoman, provincial board member, and mayor of this town, furthered that the ten families are only the first of the many beneficiaries targeted for the said program.
Bagasina, meanwhile, urged the new owners to take care of the houses awarded to them,
and make it a sanctuary for their family.
“Make these houses your home. These are now yours so please take care of them and your own surroundings. You can ask free seedlings from the local government so you can grow your own plants and vegetables in your own backyard,” she reminded them.
