6 Towns to get Makamasang Tugon projects

by Lilibeth A. French

ILOILO CITY, Jan. 12 (PIA6) -- The six municipalities in the province of Iloilo will soon get their fund release for the construction of the development projects identified by their respective community beneficiaries under the Makamasang Tugon program of the Kapitbisig Laban sa Kahirapan: Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDDS) project.

This was learned from KALAHI-CIDSS Regional Social Marketing Officer Maricar Calubiran of the Department of Social Welfare and Development 6.

Calubiran said all the six municipalities have already conducted the Municipal Inter-Barangay Forum, an activity where the community beneficiaries gathered to identify the projects and plan for the implementation of the projects which are environment-friendly and beneficial to the majority.

The Makamasang Tugon program will be implemented in Barotac Viejo, Bingawan, Carles, Calinog, Lambunao and Lemery.

Data obtained from the DSWD 6 indicated that a total of 118 prioritized sub- projects was already identified by the beneficiaries in the five municipalities excluding Carles which has just conducted its MIBF first week of January. These projects include day care centers, health centers, barangay roads, among others.

The estimated total project cost for the 118 sub-projects reached P127,153,097.34 of which 25,653,097.33 is the local counterpart of the municipalities and the remaining P101,500,000.01 from the KALAHI CIDSS which is funded by the World Bank.

Calubiran said the inclusion of the said towns in the program is an incentive for them for their successful implementation of the KALAHI-CIDSS projects intended to improve conditions of residents and alleviate poverty in their poor communities. (LAF/PIA6)
