Anakalusugan Representative Michael Defensor says state universities and colleges might be in a better position to accommodate provisional shelters 'because they have more land, structures, and facilities'

In an interview with Rappler on Tuesday, January 21, Glenda Dimaano, head of extension services of Batangas State University (BSU), said only 3 of their 11 campuses are being used as evacuation shelters. “Sobrang problema po talaga ang limited space at construction ng building sa mga campuses namin. At special case 'yung sa Lipa campus namin dahil sobrang liit ng space at kulang sa toilet, so hindi talaga kaya mag accomodate,” said Dimaano. (The limited space we have and the construction of buildings on our campuses present major problems. The Lipa campus is a special case since it’s small and there’s not enough toilets there, that’s why we could not offer it.) The same problems were experienced by BSU-San Juan campus. Campus coordinator for extension services Riza Banaera said, “ Puwede kami tumanggap, pero kaunti lang po kasi po ang mga classroom ay limited lang. Mayroon din po ditong construction ng building kaya po di rin kami makapag accomodate ng madami." (We could accommodate only a few evacuees because of limited classrooms. There’s also an ongoing building construction on our campus that’s why can’t accommodate more.) ‘Better position to accommodate survivors’ Anakalusugan Representative Michael Defensor has urged state universities in the provinces of Batangas, Cavite, and Laguna “to consider offering portions of their campuses as possible evacuation sites.” In a statement sent to the media on Sunday, January 19, Defensor said state universities and colleges (SUCs) should take initiative in taking in evacuees as they are “autonomous administrative entities” and should not wait for any “directive from the office of the President or Commission on Higher Education.” Defensor said that"state universities might be in a better position to accommodate provisional shelters simply because they have more land, structures, and facilities available across multiple locations" compared to public elementary and high schools. The Department of Education reported that more than 200 public elementary and secondary schools in Batangas and Cavite are being used as evacuation shelters, resulting in the cancellation of classes.
