President Benigno S. Aquino III led the inspection of the Manggahan Residences Phase 1 at the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Depot in Barangay Sta. Lucia, Pasig City.
The Manggahan Residences is a low-rise building project of the National Housing Authority (NHA) under the supervision of its chairperson, Chito M. Cruz. The project is under the Php 50 billion fund that the President allocated for the Metro Manila informal settler families living along danger zones such as rivers, creeks and waterways. In total, 900 families will benefit from the Manggahan Residences once construction is completed.
In his speech, President Aquino acknowledged the efforts of the residents in improving their lives by walking along the Daang Matuwid. “Lahat po, naging posible dahil pinili niyong magtaya at makibahagi sa Daang Matuwid,” he said. “Naging kapartner kayo para matamo natin ang pagbabago,” the President emphasized.
