“Sa umagang ito, masasaksihan natin ang matagal na nating minimithi na makamit, at magkaroon na tayo ng maayos, at magandang tahanan,” Congressman Abet Garcia said in his speech during the turnover and acceptance ceremony for 216 housing units of 1Bataan Village – Daan Pare Phase 1 yesterday, February 2. 1Bataan Village – Daan Pare is the first socialized housing project of the Provincial Government of Bataan which aims to provide safe and decent housing to Capunitan fire victims after a big fire razed their houses to the ground on January 29, 2019.
“Sana po, itong mga matatanggap natin, kung gaano sila kaganda ngayon, sana pagkatapos ng anim na buwan isang taon, dalawang taon, sana ganito pa rin po sila kaganda,” Cong. Abet emphasized.
For four consecutive years now, Cong. Abet has been celebrating his birthday with the residents as he made a promise to treat them every year until they can transfer to their houses.
After enumerating plans for livelihood and infrastructure within the vicinity of said housing project, Cong. Abet said,
“Sa puntong ito, gusto ko pong umapela sa inyong lahat, na yung tagumpay po at yung magandang kinabukasan ng ating buhay, bukod sa programa ng ating pamahalaan.. malaki po ang nakasalalay sa ating mga kamay.”
This project was made possible through the pooling of funds from the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development, National Housing Authority, Provincial Government of Bataan, and the coordination and support from the Bataan Human Settlements Office, Orion Local Government Unit, Barangay Daan Pare and Barangay Capunitan.
