CPPO’s project for homeless may go nationwide

ROXAS CITY — The project of the Capiz Police Provincial Office (CPPO) for the homeless may go nationwide.

Col. Julio Gustilo Jr., CPPO director, said that he already submitted the “Bahaynihan” project, a program of the provincial police for the homeless and indigent people who could not afford to have structurally sound houses, to the national headquarters as an “emerging best practice.”

“Napasa na namon sa (Camp) Crame ang amon emerging best practice nga ‘Bahaynihan.’ It is undergoing deliberation kag kon ma-meet namon ang mga desired qualification, it will become a national best practice na to be replicated in the whole nation,” Gustilo said.

Since March, the project has already sheltered 47 homeless families in Capiz, he added.

Gustilo said that they are continuing to look for beneficiaries.

“Padayon ang pagpangita naton sang mga benepisyaryo para padayon kita makabulig,” he said.

“‘Bahaynihan’ will continue as long may mga benevolent individual nga naga suporta,” Gustilo said.*
