Project-affected communities in Sipocot, Camarines Sur pleased with PRDP’s social safeguards policies
Every three months, Liza Alforte saves a portion of her husband’s income for their house renovation. For P10,000, they were able to invest in the improvement of their simple house in Brgy. Manangle Sipocot, Camarines Sur. However, in 2014, she was listed as one of the project affected persons (PAPs) whose house needs to be adjusted backward for the Concreting of Manangle to Caima Farm-to-Market Road in Sipocot, Camarines Sur.
“Sakripisyo ta imbes na okay na itong harong mo, raraoton mo para mag-move back ka (It’s a sacrifice because we have to demolish our house when we’re already okay with it),” Alforte said.
