A Home for the Indigent

CITY OF ILAGAN, Isabela (PIA) - - A house is a necessity to every human being. It is a basic need of a family. However, it is perhaps the most concern in the socio-economic profile of a community, not only in the Philippines but around the world. It is expensive. It cannot be built by a single person. 

In Isabela, the Isabela Police Provincial Office (IPPO) "Malasakit" action was conceptualized aimed to build convenient homes to indigent families. 

Since its conceptualization, PNP Isabela's Pabahay Project has already served several deserving poor families.

The beneficiaries of the Libreng Pabahay Project were selected by the police personnel in their search for indigent residents to be qualified as beneficiaries of their initiative.

The Libreng Pabahay Project was recently conceptualized by then Police Regional Office  (PRO) - 2 Director B/Gen. Steve Ludan and was implemented in partnership with the Local Government Unit concerned and several sectors in the LGUs.

Acting Provincial Director Col. Julio Go said the Libreng Pabahay Project still continue today even the proponent of the project already retired from police service.

Go said that the latest Pabahay Project that was awarded was held in Benito Soliven, Isabela where the newly-wed indigent couple in the town received a newly constructed housing unit.

“We acknowledge the support of the Local Government Units, the police station personnel and other donors who have extended their help to construct a house for our indigent Kababayans,” Go said.

He said aside from the Libreng Pabahay Project, the beneficiaries also received grocery items, cooking utensils, and other necessary kitchen items for their daily needs.

Bernardo Daniel and Thelma Daniel, the latest beneficiary of Libreng Pabahay Project of Purok 7, District 1, Benito Soliven, Isabela expressed their thanks to the Isabela Police Provincial Office (IPPO) and the Benito Soliven Police Station for providing them a house and grocery items.

Thelma Daniel said the house that was provided by the police will be treasured saying the house was constructed with the help of good people from the town and from other sources.

“We thank the police for the provision of our house now that we are married and we value this precious gift,” Thelma Daniel said. ###(MGE/PIA Isabela)
