KOLAMBUGAN, Lanao Del Norte – Some 300 fisherfolk in 13 barangays of Kolambugan receive aid from the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office of this province on Thursday, July 14, 2022.
The aid given to the farmers and fisherfolk was in the form of food items, including 10 kilos of rice and canned goods.
