In support to the government’s efforts in peace building and development, the Department of Agriculture XI (DA-XI) thru its Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan (PAMANA) program has recently turned over P1 million worth of agri infra in Brgy. Binondo, Baganga, Davao Oriental.
The members of the Nagkauyong Mandaya sang Tigbawan, Inc. (NMSTI) that were affected by typhoon Pablo in 2012 will benefit the package of support that includes a Multi-Purpose Drying Pavement (MPDP), a warehouse and bags of upland rice and corn seeds.
“Residents here were coconut farmers but after the typhoon Pablo, we ventured into upland rice and corn production but the lack of production support hinders us to earn more,” said 73- year old Angelita Maca.
