August 18, 2017. In a meeting with Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council Chairman Eduardo del Rosario and National Housing Authority General Manager Marcelino Escalada Jr., Quezon City Mayor Herbert M. Bautista declared the city government’s
commitment to build one public elementary school, one public high school and one rural health center in Marawi as the city’s contribution to the Bangon Marawi program of the national government.

Under the Bautista Administration, it has become a tradition for the QC-LGU to substantially assist poor LGUs get back on their feet, whether it is because of calamities or, in the case of Marawi, because of war.

The QC-LGU either sends substantial monetary support, or sends a multi-department team for rescue, social, humanitarian, health and engineering services, or both, depending on what would be the most effective form of assistance to the LGU.

More than Php 107 million worth of grants have been sourced from the city’s local disaster risk reduction management fund and authorized by resolutions of the City Council to mobilize this assistance.

For example, Mayor Bautista awarded the municipalities of Bulan, Sorsogon; Baler, Aurora; Bambang, Nueva Vizcaya and San Miguel, Bulacan with a modest financial assistance for their rehabilitation initiatives. The assistance is for the repair and rehabilitation of
typhoon damaged public buildings.

Earlier, QC teams helped in the construction of houses for beneficiaries in Barangay Pago in Tanauan, as well as provided multiple forms of assistance to typhoon Yolanda-ravaged municipalities of Palompon, Tolosa, and Sante Fe in Leyte for their rehabilitation efforts. Apart from the financial assistance for infrastructure development earlier pledged by the city government, the mayor and his team brought with them more than Php 20-million worth of relief goods for the three municipalities, which included construction materials, carpentry tools, and food and medical supplies.
