Housing For Storm Victims Urged

United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in the Philippines Jacqui Badcock has stressed the need for people who were affected by tropical storm ” SENDONG ” and are still living in emergency tents in Iligan and Cagayan de Oro to move into bunkhouses before the start of the rainy season in May.

Badcock issued this statement after her recent visit to the two cities 10 weeks after the calamity together with donor representatives from Australia, Canada, Japan, Spain and the United States of America.

The mission was meant to draw attention to the challenges for an early and sustainable recovery.

“Humanitarian needs will persist as long as thousands of people remain displaced without appropriate housing and community services,” said Badcock as she urged the government to continue to intensify its effort to make more land available for temporary shelters.
