COMMUNITIES IN MISAMIS ORIENTAL

GK Ambassador Pelaez
GK COMMUNITY
Opol, Misamis Oriental
    Ambassador Emmanuel Pelaez GK Village came into the picture of the GK family through the generosity of former Vice President and Ambassador Emmanuel N. Pelaez- giving his tenants and squatters a piece of land. If you could only see the actual situation of the area, you would find them as a flock of sheep without a shepherd. The tenants are workers of the Pelaez family who owns vast tracts of land particularly coco lands.  The squatters are those families living between the seashore and now the national by-pass road. The site is geographically located at Sitio Boyugon, Barangay Duca, Municipality of Medina, Misamis Oriental. It is 200 meters from the seashore parallel to the national by-pass road and also 200 meters from the new national highway. The site can easily be located as it is just a stones -throw away from the Duca Beach Resort, popularly known as the paradise of corals and white beaches.$0A new landscape has changed the old and shabby environment of the area as the 12 tatag houses are now the new homes of the families. The remaining families in their decrepit houses are still hopeful that more partners and donors come their way.  These aside from the Pelaez family who are in the forefront of looking for benefactors of their people.
