Mayor Villanueva was grateful to the Gawad Kalinga Housing Program for its untiring support for the government’s housing program. Gawad Kalinga is the housing project program of the Roman Catholic Church-allied religious group Couples spearheaded by Tony Meloto. The housing project, one of the priority concerns of Bais government, had already constructed 17 houses and constructing more for the initial 58 housing beneficiaries, said Villanueva. He further said that the effort of the US Navy officers is one of their campaigns of assisting the Philippine government whenever they come to the country.
