Alcala lauds Albay rehab efforts

LEGAZPI CITY—Albay’s effort to fast-track its rehabilitation is remarkable, Agriculture Secretary Proceso J. Alcala said during a press conference earlier today in this city.

Alcala led the turnover of rehabilitation assistance to farmers and other agri-stakeholders affected by Typhoon “Glenda” in the province of Albay.

Dubbed as Bicol Rehabilitation Assistance for Glenda –Agricultural Sector, the quick response effort will provide initial assistance consisting of agricultural inputs, farm machineries and equipment.

According to Regional Executive Director DA-Bicol Abelardo Bragas, the assistance turned over to Albay recipients includes: 1,000 bags of certified rice seeds, 5 units of hand tractor, 9,000 packets of assorted vegetable seeds, 9,000 pieces of pili seedlings, 185 bags of hybrid corn seeds, 15 bags of open-pollenated variety corn seeds; 54 sets of garden tools and 1,000 pieces of laminated sacks or canvass pieces.

Ten farmers who attended the event got 10 units of hand tractor with trailers; 10 carabaos; and 3 packets (consisting of 5 females and 1 male ) of sheep.

The total value of assistance to Albay is over Php 5.6 million.

The quick response effort in Bicol was first launched in Sorsogon province last week.

“I saw the conditions of the farmers and fishermen in typhoon-battered areas, thus, I want to fast track the assistance to them so that they can immediately recover and recoup their losses,” Alcala said.

The total amount of damages brought by tyhoon Glenda to the agricultural sector is valued at Php 3.9 billion while the number of farmers affected is about 80,435, including rice, corn, coconut, abaca, high value crops farmers and fishermen. – by Connie Destura(PNA) CTB/FGS/CBD/
