This includes a strictly implemented policy where the certificate of ownership cannot be transferred, given, or sold except when it is passed to the children of the beneficiary. Councilor Ian Mark Nacaya, chair of the Oversight Committee, clarified during the last council meeting that the city government of Cagayan de Oro did not receive any donation from other countries for Typhoon Sendong victims.
Some officials from the NHA, DSWD, and Habitat were in attendance. Like many other places in our archipelago, the City of Golden Friendship is also prone to natural hazards. Manila Mayor Fred Lim also donated P1 million and Speaker Sonny Belmonte gave P500,000. The evaluation and validation, it was known, was strictly implemented by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), City Social Welfare and Development (CSWD), Estate Management Division (EMD), National Housing Authority (NHA), and Xavier University. Masbate Governor Rizalina L. Seachon Lanete sent her representatives to handover P 250,000 donations from their province.

According to Diguinion, beneficiaries qualified for relocation to Calaanan are those families which are classified as ‘squatters’ or members of community associations affected by demolitions; squatter families which are victims of fire and squatter families which have been affected by the city government’s infrastructure projects. The City Government is continuing the process of transferring additional Sendong-affected families into the vacant (119) tents in Tent City 2 and Tent City 3. Accordingly, they have now remained assured and disaster-resilient especially when it comes to flooding. The beneficiaries who received financial aid (taken from the City Government’s Calamity Fund) for this batch came from Barangays Balulang, Agusan, Baikingon, and Balubal.
As of late, the record shows a total of P65,590,685.85 that the city received from donations which will all go to the implementation of the city government’s housing project – the construction of 1,000 houses in the Calaanan Relocation Site.

Washi – known in the Philippines as Sendong – brought flooding and mudslides that resulted in over 650 deaths and 800 still missing. The Secretary of the Department of Agriculture himself, Hon. City Mayor Vicente ‘Dongkoy’ Y.

Emano does the honor of piling the first few bricks during the groundbreaking ceremony held in the relocation site at Indahag where 1,750 houses are to be built by the Habitat for Humanity – Philippines. The mayor did not forget to thank the past administration of the city for the foresight of buying lots which now became the relocation sites, in Calaanan, Canitoan, for the Sendong affected families. Tent City 1 was able to accommodate 393 families (1,862 individuals) after a very meticulous evaluation and validation conducted by the EMD and DSWD. “Though what we are giving is not much, it is wholeheartedly given with the hope that it can help you in your efforts to recover from your difficult ordeal,” the mayor expressed. A real challenge that the CDO City Government, its people, local and foreign partners involved in the comprehensive rehabilitation work for Sendong survivors had stood up to. I could not grant your wishes as it would go against the orders of the President. “They will be taught in the field of livelihood. In his special report during this morning’s regular session presided over by Vice Mayor Caesar Ian Acenas, the councilor cited announcements from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) about foreign donations coming in intended for Cagayan de Oro and Iligan, which were both badly hit by the Dec. 16 and 17 calamity. It entered PAR on 15 December 2011 as a tropical depression and intensified further into a tropical storm. He said senators have also visited the city inquiring about foreign aid. We will be profiling these folks so we can mark their skills and help them find jobs that best fit their skill levels,” said Castro. "Sendong" left 1,257 dead, 6,071 injured, and 182 missing across 13 provinces in the Philippines. Across the Cagayan de Oro river basin, a localized heavy rain event occurred during Tropical Storm Washi's passage. The year 2000 saw the creation and rise of the Comprehensive Socialized Housing Program for the Underprivileged and Homeless Citizens of Cagayan de Oro, a program of Mayor Emano more popularly known as Piso-Piso Program, centered around the 67-hectare off-site resettlement in Calaanan, Canitoan. Those who were house owners and actual occupants (not absentee owners or renters) whose houses were washed out were given priority and thus were the first ones given access to the tents. Despite the constant mud-slinging and character assassination by the opposition, donations and relief goods still keep pouring into the city through the office of City Mayor Vicente “Dongkoy” Y. Emano. Councilor Alvin Calingin supported the move citing that there had been inquiries from the private sector regarding foreign aid. Within this relocation site, Mayor Emano has also included a special housing project which include members of the Cagayan de Oro City Police Office (COCPO), Cagayan de Oro Fire Station (COFS), and enlisted personnel of the 4th Infantry Division of the Philippine Army, with lower positions/ranks and receiving meager monthly salaries. This community is no different compared to other communities outside the relocation where in spite of the differences in points of view and ideologies, they move on with the good of the community always in the forefront, and accomplishing their goals through unity among their leaders and members, motivated by the constant support of the local government. The permanent relocation that the city government is giving to thousands of homeless families means a new community will very soon rise in Calaanan, Canitoan in this city . This is what Mayor Vicente Y. Emano expressed as he thanked everyone who has helped bring back the affected families to its feet after the calamity last December 17, 2011. The councilor proposed that an inquiry should be made about this for the interest of calamity victims.
