18 Days After Pres. Duterte's Ultimatum, Yolanda Victims Visit their Homes for the First Time


For the past three years under the administration of Pres. Aquino, Yolanda victims were waiting for the promise to transfer to their homes in Tacloban City, but they were just waiting for a failed promise not until Pres. Duterte intervened.


After 18 days of President Rody Duterte giving directives to both Housing czar Vice President Leni Robredo and Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Michael Diño to finish the project before December, Yolanda victims visit their homes for the very first time.

During the visit of Pres. Rody Duterte in Tacloban, Leyte, he found out that the previous administration failed to implement the project for the past three years and even the connections of VP Robredo to the previous administration as housing czar failed miserably.

According to Michael Diño, Pres. Duterte was shocked to find out that only a small percentage of the houses promised by the Aquino admin for the Yolanda victims had actually been built - and many are unoccupied because there are no basic utilities available for the homeowners to use.


Pres. Duterte issued a directive to ensure that all these houses must be finished and all victims be housed by December which is considered as a very tall order considering the fact that the Aquino admin wasn't even able to complete half of the projects in three years.

Eighteen days after the directives given by Pres. Rody Duterte, Yolanda victims visited their future homes in Tacloban bringing with them cleaning materials as they began preparing their homes for the permanent transfer.

Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Michael Diño and his team also made sure that all the necessities needed in the community particularly water and electricity were already provided to each dwellers.


Aside from the projects in Tacloban City, Michael Diño also visited some of the areas hit by super typhoon Yolanda to personally monitor the on-going constructions of their permanent homes. Areas visited by Diño were Daan Bantayan, Bantayan island some municipalities in Iloilo province.
