Pres. Arroyo to grace last leg of "PGMA Serbisyo Muna Caravan" in Misamis Occidental

by Babes Jacob-Rebultan

Cagayan de Oro City (20 November) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is expected to grace the last leg of the week-long People's Government Mobile Action (PGMA) Serbisyo Muna Caravan in the municipality of Baliangao, Misamis Occidental November 20.

The caravan's medical mission, which started last Nov. 17 in the towns of Panaon and Jimenez, also brought doctors and dentists to the towns of Concepcion and Aloran on Nov. 18, Lopez Jaena and Calamba on Nov. 19, and Plaridel and Baliangao, Nov. 20.

Its multi-agency desk services component, at the same time, offered their respective services to residents in Calamba town on Nov. 19 and Baliangao, Nov. 20.

While in Baliangao, President Arroyo is expected to lead the distribution of some 3,000 food packs as early Christmas gifts to poorest-of-the-poor families.

The distribution of food packs will highlight tomorrow's culmination ceremonies of the PGMA Serbisyo Muna Caravan in the province.

The caravan, aimed at responding to the needs of the 10 poorest provinces in the Philippines, is spearheaded by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (Pagcor) and supported by different government agencies.

Meanwhile, President Arroyo will lead the distribution of more than 1,000 access cards under the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino anti-poverty program to beneficiaries in Baliangao town.

The President is also expected to distribute hybrid and certified rice seeds and hybrid corn seeds to farmer-beneficiaries, including tilapia fingerlings, Handog Titulo land patents and land ownership awards to beneficiaries.

President Arroyo's visit to Baliangao is part of her on-going provincial visits, especially to depressed rural areas in the country. (PIA-MisOrOccCam) [top]
