that will be used by children in the barangay and allotted with P3

was built in Barangay Danao 1 that was made as a covered court while
the MPB in Barangay Guin-on was designed as a basketball court. They

to provide temporary shelter for local residents in the event of
flooding during typhoons and other calamities.
