Victims of Typhoon Ulysses Transferred to Quezon City Transitional Housing After 9 Months
The victims of Typhoon Ulysses have been transferred to transitional housing at Barangay Bagong Silangan in Quezon City.
The newly-built transitional housing has been turned over to the local government unit of Quezon City. The housing units are ready for occupancy and the victims of Typhoon Ulysses were the first to avail.
The residents who lost their homes due to the effects of Typhoon Ulysses last year will temporarily reside at the transitional housing units while waiting for the National Housing Authority’s permanent relocation site.
Barangay Bagong Silangan chairman Willy Cara said that the transitional housing has 47 units and 25 of them have been already occupied. Most of the occupants are homeless after the typhoon destroyed their houses.
“bale akupado na ditto ay 25 families na galling sa evacuation, sa tabing ilog, sa peculiarly kasama po diyan ang 16 na pamilya na nagstay ng medyo matagal sa aming covered court,” Cara said.
The chairman said that the homeless families could stay at the housing units until the government completed the permanent relocation site for the typhoon victims.
The units have a dimension of 20-25 square meters with comfort room, living room, laundry, kitchen and bedroom. Aside from transitional unit, the residents received relief goods from the government.
The residents also received agricultural tools and equipment as well as seeds so they could start urban gardening. The occupants could plant vegetables, which they could use for consumption or for business.
The transitional units have free water and power supply.
