TACLOBAN CITY , Philippines — Over P1,000 families who survived the devastation from Super Typhoon Yolanda have received titles for the property they are occupying at two relocation sites in this city.

The distribution of land titles for the beneficiaries of the Yolanda Pabahay Program was held on July 8 and 9 at the North Hill Arbours 1 and 2 located in Barangay 105 San Isidro.

The program was led by Mayor Alfred Romualdez and the city councilors, particularly Aimee Grafil who chairs the urban poor housing and resettlement committee, as well as officials of the National Housing Authority (NHA) in Eastern Visayas.

Romualdez said it has been his commitment to provide Yolanda survivors with land and housing units that they can call their own.

The land titles will be notarized for free at the Tacloban City Hall-north extension starting tomorrow, the city government said.

NHA-Eastern Visayas manager Constancio Enteniero thanked the city officials for supporting the housing program of the government.

Thousands of housing units are also set for distribution to other beneficiaries in the second half of the year, Enteniero said.

Distribution of more property titles will resume on July 21 for beneficiaries at other resettlement sites that will be identified by the NHA and the city housing and community development office.

Romualdez assured the beneficiaries that they would be comfortable in their communities.
