About the program:

Southville 7 in Calauan, Laguna, is a 107 hectare relocation site for families displaced by Typhoon Ondoy and the Pasig River rehabilitation. Owned by the National Housing Authority, the property is home to roughly 4,500 families. Together with our partners, we are implementing sustainable livelihood projects (through employment or enterprise) for families in the area. One such project is the MDC Greens project, which grows ornamental plants.
