CFSI hands over activity center in Valle Vista

PDFPrintE-mail

Beneficiaries of the Zamboanga City Roadmap to Recovery and Reconstruction (Z3R) in Valle Vista I and II subdivisions in Kasanyangan can now look forward to a place of convergence for the community’s activities, thanks to the Community and Family Services International (CFSI).

The CFSI Tuesday morning handed over an activity center in Valle Vista II in line with the Zamboanga Recovery Project (ZRP) in support of the families displaced by the 2013 siege.

CFSI Sub-Office head Nor Sinarimbo together with City Social Welfare Officer Socorro Rojas, Engr. Rey Bolay-og of the National Housing Authority (NHA) and representatives from the International Organization and Migration, Communications Working Group and other agencies spearheaded the hand over rites.

“The need for an activity center arose when we saw almost 1,000 families have already resettled at Vale Vista Phase I and II yet there was no space for them to convene in order to work collectively,” Sinarimbo said.

The activity center has an area of 54 square meters that can accommodate maximum of 80 people. Its walls are covered with a meter-tall board from the bottom and the upper part is covered with cyclone wire for ventilation. It also took into consideration the traditional ornament of Bajaus and Tausug architecture- the Tajuk Pasong. It was constructed by the CFSI with funding support from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) of the Australian government.

As agreed by the community, the activity center will be used for community activities such as ‘Pagduwaa’, a traditional gathering among local badjaus and tausugs for celebrations, resolving conflicts, and for Tarawi during the month of Ramadan. Illegal activities such as use of illegal drugs, drinking alcohol and loitering are prohibited.

The center will be managed by the community leaders who were elected in an organization activity initiated by the CFSI.

Rojas in her message thanked the CFSI for the initiative and urged the community to make proper and maximum use of the facility.

Last month, the CFSI with funding support from the Australian government and in partnership with the CRS and LGU also handed over a day-care facility to the Tulungatung barangay council and 45 permanent shelter units to untagged families. (Sheila Covarrubias)
