PIA Press Release

Kalinga gets 3,375 bags of rice for last round of food-for-work

by Larry Lopez

Tabuk, Kalinga (1 October) -- The province started distributing to recipient municipalities the newly delivered 3,375 bags of rice for the last round of the Food-for-Work program, this year.

Imelda Polig, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Cordillera Regional Representative to Kalinga, who is in-charge of the Food-for Work program, said the rice allocation for the last round is as follows: Balbalan, 1,026 bags; Tinglayan,1,018; Lubuagan, 400; Pasil,k 365; Tabuk,262; Tanudan, 200 and Pinukpuk,104.

In the last round, only six municipalities were identified based on the evaluation made, Polig said.

Food-for-Work was launched in the province by the United Nations World Food Program (UNWFP) early this year as part of its rehabilitation assistance to typhoon -stricken areas.

Kalinga is a beneficiary of the program because damages wrought by typhoons Pepeng and Ondoy that also devastated many areas in the country last year.

Polig said rehabilitation of damaged infrastructure facilities is given priority under the program explaining that the distribution is based on proposals submitted by recipient municipalities.

This should answer why some requests in the proposals were not granted because of this program priority, Polig explained.

She clarified that the evaluation team considered certain items like support to dengue eradication where clearing of canals and water passages were included in the work.

Polig is optimistic the last round would complete all listed rehabilitation works in Kalinga. Each worker earns 10 kilograms of rice for each day of work rendered under the program. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
