Tagum City Mayor Allan Rellon has led the turnover of core shelter unit to an indigent senior citizen in Nueva Fuerza.
The provision of shelters to poor Tagumenyos is part of the ongoing BAHAYanihan Project, which is a collaborative endeavor of the local government through the City Youth and Development Office.
The program is also in partnership with the Barangay Government Units and the City Engineer’s Office to help build decent housing units for the underprivileged residents.
The city government said the recipient from Nueva Fuerza is Colastica Catalan, 81, with no family and no permanent place to live in.
She is the third recipient of the project in its less than two months of implementation.
Barangay Nueva Fuerza led by Wellie Arcayna provided the space for the housing unit near the barangay hall compound.
