Pandi housing gains water access
Urban poor group Kadamay rejoiced on May 6 for getting water access in a BFP Housing in Pandi, Bulacan. The group greeted residents who untiringly and collectively fought for their right to basic social services.
According to the group, BFP Pabahay residents in Pandi, Bulacan waited for six years to get water access in their housing units. The group emphasized that the lack of basic social services such as water and electricity in public housing is a prevalent problem. This has forced urban poor residents to pay higher than the usual fees just to stay in housing units. Residents covered by decent housing grants have long been asserting that it is everyone’s right to have access to sufficient supply of water, electricity, education and livelihood.
