Each family received a bag of rice containing 5 kilos of rice.

She said the PSWDO has earlier coordinated with the respective Local Government Units in to come up with the list of beneficiaries who were identified by the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO) with the help of barangay officials. The coordination also includes the repacking, hauling and handling of rice for smooth distribution.

Guillaran also said that the relief assistance form part of the entire outreach program of the provincial government slated for many villages before the end of the year. The other activities include free eye checkup and eyeglass for senior citizens, free medical-dental check-up and gift-giving to children (Pamaskong Handog).

“This is an early gift to the beneficiaries to make them feel the provincial government’s genuine love and care especially this Yuletide season”, she added.

Provincial officials aim to distribute thousands of bags of rice to other towns with the following tentative schedule: Midsayap (Nov 20-21), Pigcawayan (Nov 22), Pikit (Nov 23-24), Tulunan (Nov 26-27), Banisilan (Nov 28-29), Carmen (Dec 1-2), Kabacan (Dec 5-6), Matalam, M’lang (Dec 7-8), Antipas (Dec 9), Arakan (Dec 12-13), Pres Roxas (Dec. 14-15), Magpet (Dec 16-17), Kidapawan City (Dec 19-20), and Makilala (Dec 21-22).

“The distribution of rice bags are being done systematically with the presence of village officials”, said Marchita Capilitan, PSWDO Focal Person adding that it is important for identified families to receive the rice assistance as many of them were affected by the El Niño phenomenon in the past few months. The office pushed for the distribution to help ease the negative effect of drought due to the phenomenon especially the farmers.

Just the previous months, the PSWDO was also able to distribute rice assistance to many families affected by different calamities like long drought, flashfloods and those displaced families because of Rido or clan wars.

Apart from this, the provincial officials maintain that basic services, programs and projects must be implemented continuously and prove once more of the provincial government’s “Serbisyong Totoo” where sincerity, dedication and mandate to serve the constituents is a top priority.
