KICHARAO, Agusan del Norte- The Provincial Agriculturist Office through the Animal (Chicken) Dispersal Project of the AGUSAN UP of the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Agusan del Norte which is headed by Gov. Dale B. Corvera donated 100 chicks to the former rebels (FRs) at headquarters 29IB, Brgy. Del Pilar, Cabadbaran City, Agusan del Norte on July 29, 2020,
The donated chicks will be distributed to the FRs as soon as these are full-grown. These can provide the FRs with an additional source of income or food for their everyday needs.
Alias @Anie, one of the FRs who benefited from the project said, “My joy is full because of the overwhelming assistance provided by the government. It’s hard to imagine how our life would be without such help. I hope in time we could also pay back all the goodness which the government has shown us.”
According to Lt. Col Isagani O. Criste, Commanding Officer of 29IB, ”The government has been exerting a lot of efforts and exhausting all means to keep its promise of help to its people particularly the FRs. I just hope we appreciate such efforts, by doing our part to take care of what they have provided us. May we use it to help ourselves because not all the time can the government provide for us. We need to stand up and work hard.”
“And to all other rebels who are still doubting if the government’s promises are sincere, just come down and see for yourself how wonderful are its programs and projects for you. Surrender now, and start to live a better life,” Criste encouraged.
