MANILA, Philippines - Habitat for Humanity Philippines (HFHP) and UnionBank have joined forces for housing development in Bgy. Catagbacan, Loon, Bohol.

The P10 million donated by UnionBank will benefit families stricken by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit Bohol province in October.

HFHP CEO & managing director Charlie Ayco said: “Habitat brings communities together and bring hope. We can dream that everyone in Bohol has a decent place to live or we can start building that dream now.” “This is the biggest donation that Habitat has received for Bohol.  We are very grateful that Bohol has not been forgotten in spite of the other disasters that have come after.  Let us rebuild lives not only in Tacloban, Samar, Cebu, but let us not forget our kababayans in Zamboanga and Bohol, ” he added

The donation will enable Habitat to serve 70 families with core housing units made of bamboo and cement – a combination that Habitat developed and was first used in Cagayan de Oro.  Another 100 families will benefit from the shelter repair kits (SRK) to repair their partially damaged homes.

UnionBank chairman and CEO Justo A. Ortiz is pleased to have Habitat as their partner for their CPSR efforts. “We are so happy to have a partner that can make things happen,” he said.
