4,000 families in NorthCot towns benefit from various infra projects

  • May 17, 2017

KIDAPAWAN CITY, North Cotabato, May 17 (PIA)--- At least 4,000 families in the municipalities of Libungan, Alamada, and Aleosan can now benefit from various infrastructure projects turned over recently by the provincial government.


The projects which include post-harvest facilities (solar dryer with basketball court, ring and stage), hanging bridge, and covered court were allotted with fund worth over P16 million.


In Libungan town, residents of Barangay Nicaan and adjacent villages of Kiloyao, Sinapangan, and Kibudacan do not anymore need to ride a banca as the 50- meter hanging bridge is now ready for use.


In Alamada particularly in Barangay Malitubog, residents can now dry their agricultural products for free. “This project is really a great help because we used to pay P10 per sack and P17 per collapsible drier (trapal) when we dry our produce,” barangay secretary Jonalyn Majan noted.


Meanwhile, in Aleosan town, covered courts which could be used for different activities can be used by the residents of beneficiary villages which include Cawilihan, Upper Mingading, Malapang, Tomado, and San Mateo.


The covered court projects were implemented in partnership with the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP). (SJDuerme- PIA12  with report from MJKinkito- PGO- IDCD/Media Center)
