MetadataShow full item record
Several families living in Boracay’s no-build zones have received notices to vacate their homes as part of the government’s plan to rehabilitate the island, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) said yesterday. At least 28 families composed of informal settlers received eviction notices, which would be implemented in the coming months, according to DSWD officer-in-charge Emmanuel Leyco. “We’ll continue our efforts to determine the needs of the informal settlers such as relocation and initial assistance,” Leyco said.
