Why we fact-checked this: The TikTok video containing the claim has 854 reactions, 64 comments, and 27,300 views as of writing.
CNN, for its part, reported about the Pambansang Pabahay para sa Pilipino project.
Other media outlets like PhilStar and Manila Standard also reported about the event. Manila Bulletin mentioned the project’s groundbreaking ceremony in Quezon City in a report that focused on the project’s groundbreaking ceremony elsewhere – in Marikina City.
What is the Pambansang Pabahay project? The DHSUD said in a Laging Handa PH public briefing on September 14, 2022, that it targets building six million housing units in the next six years.
A Philippine News Agency article published on October 27, 2022, said the country’s housing backlog now stands at more than 6.5 million. – Lorenz Pasion/Rappler.com
