‘Di kinalimutan sina lolo, lola: Rex Gatchalian gives sneak peek of Bahay Kanlungan


The COVID-19 pandemic may have put a dent on the coffers of Valenzuela City, but Mayor Rex Gatchalian is bent on continuing priority infrastructure projects.

Gatchalian shared on Facebook a sneak peek of the Bahay Kanlungan being built by the city government for the elderly.

“This new home will be our care facility for abandoned senior citizens. Mga matatanda na iniwanan na at wala nang pamilya na nagaaruga. This new facility will bring our halfway houses to 3,” the mayor said.

Gatchalian said the Bahay Kanlungan was designed to look like traditional Filipino homes.

“We want to give our Lolos and Lolas a home-like-feel in their golden years,” he said.

Bahay Kanlungan will be opened at the end of May.
