The groundbreaking was held today for the Sendong Memorial Wall which will rise at the southwest section of Gaston Park.
The marker, which measures 8 feet tall and 12 feet wide, bears the name of those who perished during Typhoon Sendong. Accordingly, the names were based on the list provided by the National Disaster Risk Reduction Council (NDRRC) Regional Office No. 10 and will be updated.

The wall is a project of Junior Chamber International (JCI) led by Project Committee Chairperson Gean Tulang-Cesar. As shown, the Memorial Wall will be enclosed by a small fence with an opening at the front with stepping stones leading to the wall…
The groundbreaking and capsule laying ceremony was attended by JCI personalities and City officials led by Mayor Vicente Emano. This is the second of its kind after the Memorial Wall at Golden Haven.
