PALO, Leyte- A disaster resilient school building is soon to be constructed at the Palo Central School. This was disclosed by Leyte Governor Leopoldo Dominico Petilla who said that construction of the two-classrooms building will be funded by the Direct Data Capture Group of Companies. The United Kingdom-based company, whose president is Jan Trevalyan, donated P2 million for the construction of the building.
The governor said that the construction will immediately start. His brother, Energy Secretary Carlos Jericho Petilla, led in the ground breaking of the project last October 8. Gov. Petilla said that the school building to be constructed could withstand strong typhoons like that of Yolanda which caused much destruction to this town on November 8, 2013. The DDC is a business partner of Freight Process Outsourcing Solutions, Incorporated (FPOSI), a business processing outsourcing company owned by the family of Sec. Petilla. (RESTITUTO A. CAYUBIT)
