The Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP) on Tuesday vowed to support the “Buhay at Bahay” caravan of Quezon City Councilor Mikey Belmonte of District 2 following the recent signing of a memorandum of understanding at the Commonwealth High School.
In line with President Ferdinand Bongbong Marcos Jr.’s agenda to uplift the lives of the marginalized sector, the program aims to generate potential immediate and long-term programs and projects from national and international partners to complement and amplify the city government’s interventions to alleviate the people from poverty and promote the attainment of the human development potential, Undersecretary Elpidio Jordan Jr. said.
Buhay at Bahay: Housing and Improved Community Service Caravans for Quezon City features a two-day convergence of government programs tailor-fitted to the needs of the people as whole-of-government approach.
Belmonte stressed the need to address poverty in every area possible using adaptive programs. The PCUP is housing its information booth, together with other national government agencies and the private sector, to address the issues and concerns of the urban poor and urban poor organizations from District 2.
