Moreno noted that despite the pandemic, the project seeks to uplift the status of individuals living in informal settlements.

“Habang busy tayong tumatakas sa pandemya, kailangan tuloy ang ating mga pangarap. Nakakapagod. Pero hindi baleng pagod basta makita kong nakangiti kayo masaya na ako,” the city chief executive said.

(While we are busy escaping the pandemic, our dream should continue. It’s tiring. But, it’s fine, as long as I see them smile, I’m happy.)

The Pedro Gil Residences is the fifth housing project of the local government unit for informal settlers and renters in the city of Manila. The other projects are the Tondominium 1, Tondominium 2, Binondominium, and the BaseCommunity.
