Over P1M countryside dev't program benefits 26 families in Tagbina 

TAGBINA, Surigao del Sur -- Some 26 families received the cash assistance with total amount of P1.1 million under the Balik Probinsya, Bagong Pag-asa (BP2) Program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Caraga in Tagbina, Surigao del Sur on August 30, 2023.

According to Glenn Lazaro, srivate Secretary of the local government unit of Tagbina, the 26 families received the transitory support package ranging from P25,000 to P50,000, depending on the number of family members and the assessment of social workers, that will cover the food and non-food items needed while the family is in the transition phase.

In her message, Mayor Glaiza Jane P. Lanete acknowledged the efforts of the DSWD, and the cooperation of the involved agencies in the program implementation.

"We are grateful to workers of DSWD nga nagtrabaho gajud sa tinuoray. Pasalamatan nato ang mga tao nga naghago apil ang goberno nga nagtabang sa atong mga panginahanglan ug sila mismo ang naglihok ani para mapaspas ang pag-implement ug matagamtaman ninyo ang tabang para sa katawhan sa Tagbina (We are grateful to workers of DSWD, who really worked hard. We would like to thank the people who are involved including the government that is helping our needs and they are the ones who are taking action to speed up the implementation of the program. Now the people of Tagbina have enjoyed the help that you gave),” Mayor Lanete said.

DSWD Regional Program Coordinator (RPC) Bennette Dave Calo, on the otherhand, appreciated the effort of the LGU for doing their part.

“ Ang Tagbina ang pinaka-paspas sa tanang LGU nga nagcomply sa mga requirements aron mapadali ang pay-out sa BP2P, wala nag-abot ug usa kabulan, nahatag na ang cash assistance sa inyuha (Tagbina is the fastest among all the LGUs that complied with the requirements to expedite the BP2P pay-out, in less than a month the assistance was given to you),” Calo hailed.

Calo added, “Ang hangyo namo nga kining kwarta nga gibubo, gihatag nga assistance sa inyoha, inyong igasto sa angay nga dapat dapatan (Our request is that the money given to you as assistance should be spent in the right way).”

Meanwhile, the BP2 was institutionalized by virtue of Executive Order 114, series of 2020, which was anchored on a vision of achieving a balanced regional development and equitable distribution of wealth, resources, and opportunities through policies and programs that boost countryside development and inclusive growth, provide adequate social services, and promote full employment, industrialization and improved quality of life in rural areas.
