Marawi task force readies transitory shelters for IDPs

MARAWI City — Another 550 displaced families here are set to move in to transitory shelters built by the Task Force Bangon Marawi (TFBM) through the National Housing Authority come Jan. 17.

Located in Barangay Boganga, a total of 1,500 transitional shelters would be constructed in a land area of 15.95 hectares.

“Starting Jan. 17, magtuturn-over ng 550 units ng temporary shelters sa Boganga. Ang uunahin natin ay iyong mga nakatira sa evacuation centers sa Lanao del  Norte at ibang selected areas sa Lanao del Sur,” Assistant Secretary Felix Castro Jr., TFBM Field Office manager said.

Each housing unit has a floor area of 24 square-meters with partitions, kitchen sink, restroom, and a rainwater catchment.

A technical working group spearheaded by the local government of Marawi identified the beneficiaries for these shelters.

The beneficiaries are coming from the 24 barangays in the most affected area of this war-torn city. 

TFBM continues to expedite the construction of transitory shelters to free the displaced families from crowded evacuation centers.
