AURORA IP COMMUNITIES RECEIVE AID
CASIGURAN – Regional Director Wilfredo Cruz initiated the distribution of relief goods to Indigenous People (IP) communities in the coastal barangays of Calabgan, Tinib, Dibacong, Calantas, Culat, Cozo and San Ildefonso in an activity held yesterday, May 10.
The provincial fisheries office, with the assistance of the local government, has identified more than 300 families as beneficiaries of food packs containing rice, frozen chicken and bacon, and some basic supplies.
Considered as one of the most neglected sectors of society, the “katutubos” are very vulnerable and are, sometimes, exploited. RD Cruz vowed to continue to assist in his own little way. “Help sees no color, knows no faith and recognizes no boundaries. Rest assured that BFAR Central Luzon, together with our LGUs and with the support of our stake holders, will continue to reach out to far-flung areas to bring the government closer to the people,” he said.
Relatedly, RD Cruz also visited the Casiguran Municipal Health Office and the Aurora Memorial Hospital and provided both with PPEs, surgical gloves and masks as a way of expressing gratitude to the selfless and tireless health workers and frontliners.
The activity was made possible through the big-heartedness of Angel Farmers, Feedmix Specialist Inc., Chlorellinda Trading and BFAR3 EU. (Photos by PFO Aurora)
