Support for Marawi rehabilitation: Sen. Ronald "Bato" dela Rosa expresses his support to any budget increase for the Marawi reconstruction, rehabilitation and recovery program during the hybrid plenary deliberation on the proposed P5.448 billion budget of the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD), Thursday, November 19, 2020. Dela Rosa said he trusts and believes the word of DHSUD Sec. Eduardo Del Rosario that infrastructure rehabilitation in Marawi will be completed by December 2021. “It has been three years since the government declared liberation from the Maute Group, which displaced thousands of families. Our brothers and sisters are still struggling for permanent shelter. Mr. President, no words can express my personal and perhaps, our collective frustrations in what happened to the bustling City of Marawi. But let us all channel these frustrations into collective action and aid our countrymen to stand up again and start anew,” Dela Rosa said. (Screen grab/ Senate PRIB)
