COTABATO CITY—Bangsamoro Government’s Marawi Rehabilitation Program (MRP) is providing assessments for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the Most Affected Areas (MAA) of the 2017 Marawi siege to provide construction materials, building permits, technical, and emergency shelter assistance to rebuild and repair their damaged houses.
In April, BARMM-MRP staff conducted ocular visits to applicants for construction materials assistance (CMA), which is one of the main projects aimed at assisting Marawi IDPs.
Qualified beneficiaries will receive building materials, labor grants, and free training from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) for the workers who will build the houses. However, applicants must follow requirements and processes to avail of the project.
“Sa lahat po ng mga applicants na kwalipikado ay maghintay po tayo ng kaunting panahon dahil marami pong proseso ang mga ganitong proyekto. Maging kami man po sa MRP ay nais namin ibigay sa inyo ng agaran ang inyong mga pangangailangan ngunit mayroon po tayong dapat sundin na mga protocols,” said Mohd Noory Bin Anshary, MRP Operation Supervisor.
The Bangsamoro leadership is also constructing housing projects in the different neighboring towns of Marawi City for qualified IDPs.
“Ongoing po ang pagpapatayo ng mga housing projects ng Bangsamoro Government para sa mga IDPs, kaya naman nagkaroon ng masusing validation ang mga MRP staffs para sa mga kwalipikadong applicants,” Anshary added.
The socio-economic and technical assessment is one of the considerations in determining whether the applicant qualifies to be among the beneficiaries of the CMA. (Johaira Sahidala/BIO with reports from MRP)
