BOTOLAN, Zambales — The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) 3 (Central Luzon) has collaborated with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) in implementing a core assistance shelter project.

Under the agreement, the AFP will send 20 troops to construct 105 housing units in Kainomayan village of this town.

The project, dubbed “KiSLAP ng CSAP” (Kikilos ang Sandatahang Lakas, Aagapay sa Pabahay ng Core Shelter Assistance Program), was launched here Monday, during which representatives of the two government agencies signed a pledge of commitment.

“We will do our best efforts. If there is a need for us not to sleep, we will do it in order to finish the construction of the housing units,” said Lt. Col. Fernando G. Balona, AFP staff leader, who will be in charge of the construction of the units.

The shelters are expected to be completed within 30 working days.

Struggling for workforce of the construction, Municipal Social Welfare and Development Officer Edwina Sibug said she is very thankful for the project.

“Actually, we have a difficult time mobilizing the beneficiaries, especially the elders and those who do not have relatives to work, thus it is indeed a big help,” Sibug said.

The Core Shelter Assistance Program is one of the interventions of DSWD in disaster response and rehabilitation, aiming to provide environment-friendly, structurally strong shelter units for victims of disasters or those living in hazardous areas.
