P50M Pagcor-funded evacuation centers to rise in Samal, Orani
The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (Pagcor) is funding two multipurpose evacuation centers worth P50 million each in Samal and Orani towns in Bataan province, according to officials.
The groundbreaking for the two projects was conducted on Thursday in Barangay Gugo in Samal and Barangay Mulawin in Orani.
According to a Philippine News Agency report, Bataan Governor Albert Garcia thanked Pagcor chair and chief executive officer Andrea Domingo for choosing the two towns as the project sites.
“We in Bataan are happy that despite the pandemic we face, Pagcor continues to pour in financial support to the needy in the province and now fund projects that will help our constituents in times of calamities,” the governor said.
In the report, Samal Mayor Aida Macalinao said the evacuation center would go a long way toward helping distressed communities during natural disasters.
“Ang pagkakaroon ng isang moderno, maayos at maipagmamalaking pasilidad ay makakatulong upang kami ay patuloy na makapagkaloob ng isang serbisyo publiko na ‘deserve’ ng aming mga kababayan,” the mayor said.
