DAR joins "Dugong-Bombo Blood-Letting" activity

by Gil E. Miranda

DAR-Agusan del Norte (14 November) -- The Department of Agrarian Reform, Provincial Office of Agusan del Norte and the Bombo Radio Butuan, joined hands in conducting blood-letting activity as part of its community outreach program held at Capitol Training Center on November 8, 2008.

PARO II Andre B. Atega, one of the blood donors said that: "I was once a recipient of blood donation from unknown persons. But our participation now is not just out of eternal gratitude for the people who saved my life in 1976 but as an expression that for CARP extension we in DAR like the farmers in Mendiola are willing to shed our blood."

Further, PARO II Atega in justifying the campaign stated that "Blood donation is akin to land distribution in the sense that it is an act of giving to the needy what we have in excess of."

Health program is one of DAR's interventions in the ARCs. Specifically, distribution of PhilHealth cards through partnership with the People's Organization (PO) and PhilHealth, Inc. and granting of Solar Powered Vaccine Fridge in remote areas are among the specific health services provided by DAR to the farmers & Indigenous Peoples (IPs).
