We support President Rodrigo Duterte’s statement regarding the importance of relocatable, safe, and sustainable housing for Filipinos, who are to be relocated.
We believe in advocating for the dignity of those who are relocated, and that necessitates houses that have connections to electrical lines and have running water. Moreover, relocation sites should also be areas where residents may have livelihood options and have access to jobs and schools.
We have long worked with families and communities on this advocacy, as many have previously been relocated to inhabitable and unsustainable areas.
We shall try our best to achieve this goal as HUDCC Chair.
