CITY OF MALOLOS- More than 1, 500 Bulakenyo fishermen and farmers will gather at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium on March 20 at 8 a.m as Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado leads the distribution of agricultural assistance to the victims of the typhoons Pedring and Quiel.

Alvarado said that this program aims to provide farmers and fisher folk donations such as 200,000 mangrove seedlings, 20,000 nipa shoots, 20 shallow tube wells and 10 million fingerlings.

“Through the years, Bulakenyos had proven that we are not the sort who gives up easily. That’s why, we would like to help our fishermen and farmers to start anew and gain back what they had lost during the typhoons. It will also serve as a step for the improvement of agricultural production,” said Alvarado.

Provincial Agriculturist Gloria Carillo added that majority of the affected fishermen comes from the coastal areas such as Paombong, Malolos, Obando and Hagonoy.

She added that Department of Justice Secretary Leila de Lima will grace the event and discuss the rights of the workers. Other guest speakers will be coming from the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, National Irrigation Administration and Department of Agrarian Reform.

Also, the oath taking of the new Barangay Agrarian Reform Council (BARC), which serves as the main partner at the community level for the successful implementation of Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), will take place in the event. ###
