NPC-Funded Facilities Used as Evacuation Centers in Lanao
Following the on-going conflict in Marawi City, thousands of families were displaced and are now seeking shelter in evacuation centers in nearby municipalities.
Four of these evacuation centers were funded by NPC through its internally generated cash and through ER 1-94, the incentives given by DOE to communities hosting power generation facilities. These are the open multi-purpose gymnasiums and building in West Poblacion, Baloi; Brgy Campong, Pantar in Lanao del Norte; and Brgy. Poblacion in Saguiaran, Lanao del Sur.
The local government units and NPC offered these facilities as evacuation centers to guarantee the safety of the displaced families.
NPC joins the nation in prayers that the conflict will soon end and for peace to reign once more for the sake of its residents.
