The Department of Social Welfare and Development Office through the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan – Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS) National Community – Driven Development Project handed over the Subject Project of 0.275 km Farm to Market Road along Purok 2 after the Blessing Ceremony to the Council of Barangay Bubong represented by Chairperson Linda C. Otto on October 22, 2018.

Provincial Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo expressed that the newly constructed FMR will bring convenience to the students and to the farmers of the area and nearby places in transporting their farm products down to the municipal market of Kolambugan. The road improvement will not be made possible without the participation of the residents in identifying the needs of their community and their involvement from planning, implementing and monitoring the projects together.

“We in the provincial government including the municipalities have earnestly worked hard to avail projects from various departments of the national government such as this. DSWD through the Kalahi-CIDSS program have implemented numerous projects in different municipalities of Lanao del Norte by encouraging participation of the residents, and through you, residents of the community have identified and presented the needed project that will benefit not only the few but the whole community. This project is not for me, not for Mayor Manigos but this is intended for you, because this is our promise to deliver programs and projects that will address local poverty issues.”

Barangay Chairperson Otto thanked the government for the programs that have entered in their municipality that benefitted the residents of her barangay.

Municipal Mayor Lorenzo V. Manigos was happy to see the concreted road that gives hope in the lives of the people in a chance to improve their economic situation for the good of their family.

The turnover of the subproject in Barangay Bubong was witnessed by Honorable Board Member Setty Deamila Macarambon, Sangguniang Bayan members and Chairmen of nearby Barangays of the Municipality of Kolambugan. PIO-LDN
