CATBALOGAN CITY – Payment of
project affected entities (PAEs) as what the Millennium Challenge
Account- Philippines (MCA-P) Chairman and Executive Officer (CEO) Marivic Añonuevo bared has reached P5 million.
PAEs are those structures,
properties and improvements affected by the road project in Samar.
During the 20th Samar Island
Partnership for Peace and Development (SIPPAD) Assembly in Catbalogan
City, Monday, Añonuevo gave the remarks:
“On resettlement, we started
the payment of compensation to PAEs in San Julian to Balangkayan since
June and we hope to finish it next month. So far, we have paid P5
million to about 145 PAEs out of 3,692 identified PAEs. The balance is
in the process of validation and payment.”
The MCA-P Chairman and
Executive Officer also lauded the LGUs for the smooth negotiations.
“We are happy to note the
support and cooperation being extended by the LGUs and by the people
themselves, towards a smooth resolution of the resettlement issues,”
the lady told the SIPPAD participants from the three Samar provinces.
“In the true spirit of
bayanihan, barangay folks help one another in moving houses affected
by the project,” Añonuevo noted.
Añonuevo also talked of
KALAHI-CIDSS KKB Projects, a community driven development project
implemented by MCA-P with the Department of Social Welfare and
Development (DSWD) that has implemented more than one thousand
sub-projects through the Makamasang Tugon.
She added that most of those
address basic social services like school buildings, health stations
and day care centers, concrete pathwalks and farm-to-market roads.
Añonuevo was joined by

Director Eileen Jose who also shared the millions of PAMANA projects
