6 PWD groups get livelihood assistance
by Erwin S. Batnag

BONTOC, Mountain Province – Six organizations of persons with disability are among the 15 people’s organizations that received livelihood assistance last Friday under the “Barangay Muna” program of the provincial government.

Each organization received 100 heads of vaccinated free-range chicks.

June C. Pinayakan, focal person for Provincial Poultry Development Program, said it is the second time that the chick dispersal has been done this year.

He said since it  started last year, the program has already benefitted 120 people’s organizations.

The program was conceptualized as a countermeasure of the provincial government to the shortage of poultry eggs and meat in the province while also providing a source of food, income, and employment to the province’s constituents.

Cyril Bacala, Jr., president of the Bontoc Differently Abled Persons Organization, expressed his gratitude to the provincial government for prioritizing PWD organizations during the second release of the livelihood assistance for this year.

“This is a big thing for us. The provincial government has given us the opportunity to improve our livelihood. This will encourage our members to become dependable partners of the government in attaining development in the community by becoming productive citizens and as our counterpart, we will sustain it,” Bacala said.

During the Provincial Agricultural Board meeting last Thursday, Acting Gov. Bonifacio C. Lacwasan Jr. appealed for the continuous assistance of municipal officials and agriculturists in monitoring the beneficiaries of the program.

With the positive responses that the program generated, Lacswasan assured that more organizations will be accommodated next year.

The Provincial Veterinarian’s Office, meanwhile, gave an orientation on proper poultry raising.

Provincial Veterinarian Rodelio Bagawi also urged the beneficiaries to take good care of the poultry animals in order to maximize its use.
