“Leyte is notably susceptible to natural calamities especially typhoons, thus the project targets to protect these vulnerable communities by providing them with a safe and hazard adaptive place where they can seek shelter and where their safety is considered paramount,” said DE Gonzalez.

Building evacuation centers is part of the Department’s program on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation but more than that the Department continues to complete its mission to build a safe place for the community that is responsive to their needs. (DPWH/TCDEO/APLA)
