Vice President Jejomar C. Binay reiterated the order of President Benigno Aquino III to relocate residents living in danger zones in Cagayan de Oro (CDO) City, Iligan and other localities affected by typhoon Sendong.

                  Binay will again visit CDO Wednesday for a dialog with local officials of municipalities affected by the typhoon, and other sectoral groups. He will be joined by Department of Social Work and Development (DSWD) Secretary Corazon Soliman, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Rogelio Singson, Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Jesse Robredo and Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Armin Luistroas well as the heads of the key shelter agencies (KSAs).

                  "All families in danger zones will have to be relocated as per directive of the President," said Binay, chairman of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council, during his meeting with the Cabinet secretaries.

                  The Vice President met with the four Cabinet Secretaries Monday at the Coconut Palace.

                  During the meeting, Soliman said that an estimated 30,000-33,000 families need to be relocated. Eight subdivisions in CDO were also badly hit by the typhoon, according to Home Development Mutual Fund Chief Executive Officer Atty. Darlene Berberabe.

                  “The local government unit (LGU) has readily-available lands to be used as relocation sites. We just need the NHA (National Housing Authority) to coordinate with the LGU," Binay said.

                  Singson said that DPWH will be responsible for the concreting of roads to the relocation sites, while the LGUs would take care of gravelling and drainage.

                  Luistro, for his part, said that DepEd will need to know where the families are from and where they would be relocated so his department would be able to determine where to build schools.

                  NHA chief Chito Cruz assured Luistro that they will provide the information that the DepEd needs.

                  Meanwhile, a representative of the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce, Inc. (FCCCI), who was also at the meeting, said the Filipino-Chinese community will be donating 600 housing units.

                  The FCCCI representative said that the donated houses "should be given to the poorest of the poor."​
