·2 min read

A MOTHER of three with physical impairment could not control her emotions when she received the key to her new house in Barangay Sapangdaku, Cebu City on Tuesday at 2 p.m., June 21, 2022.

The house was constructed under the “Bahay Mo, Sagot Ko” program of the Police Community Affairs and Development Group of the Cebu City Police Office on December 2021 after seeing the plight of the beneficiary, Jenden Mancia, a blind person who is taking care of her three children aged six, three and two, alone after she left by her partner, who is also blind.

According to Police Major Jonathan dela Cerna, chief of Guadalupe Police Station 9, said they decided to build a new house made of concrete enough to accommodate Mancia and her children to spare the family from imminent danger as they live in a hut that sits on the edge of a cliff in Sitio Baksan in Sapangdaku.

“Kay kami man gyud ang nag koan ani ngadto, pag tan-aw nako sa ilang bay hapit naman gyud matagak sa pangpang nya busloton pa, ingun ana bitaw ang sitwasyon, luoy ba,” Dela Cerna said.

Dela Cerna admitted during the house turnover that tears also fell down his eyes after realizing that Mancia, despite having a physical impairment, is still trying to survive for her children.

Another beneficiary, Benjie Mabano, also received they keys to his new house in Sitio Santikon, Barangay Kalunasan.

Mabano only relies on extracting sand and gravel for his livelihood.

Dela Cerna said they also took pity on Mabano, who earns a living by extracting sand and gravel and selling them to the owners of houses that are under construction in the area.

Dela Cerna said another two houses are also set to be turned over to their beneficiaries. (TPT)
