    Rebuilding of typhoon-hit Phl continues

    REHABILITATION and reconstruction works in typhoon “Yolanda” devastated areas in Central Philippines will continue even without the post disaster needs assessment (PDNA) of every province affected by the calamity, a government official said Saturday.
    Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said different clusters working on disaster rehabilitation did their final vetting on government programs to be implemented in different provinces.
    Among the provinces included in the vetting list are Leyte, Cebu and Western Samar provinces as well as the cities of Cebu and Tacloban, Coloma said.
    And while other provinces work on their respective PDNAs, the office of Secretary Panfilo Lacson, who is in charge of government's reconstruction efforts, expects the assessment to be completed by June, Coloma said.
    The government is not working alone, he said, noting there are many private organizations that are doing their reconstruction initiatives in typhoon-affected areas.
    The Palace official also made an assurance that there is enough government fund for the agencies to support the ongoing reconstruction works.
