BARMM gives 800 native chickens to disaster-stricken SGA farmers

COTABATO CITY—To produce more chickens and help farmers recover from recent calamities, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Agrarian Reform (MAFAR) delivered 800 heads of free-range native chickens in Special Geographical Area (SGA) on Jan. 12 held at the MAFAR-SGA Sub Office, Kabacan, in North Cotabato.

Through the MAFAR’s Halal Program, 50 individual farmers received 15 heads each, while members of the Integrated Bangsamoro Agricultural Development Association received 50 heads.

“The distribution was part of the Ministry’s objective focused on uplifting the living condition of every farmer in the region and aimed to help increase income and have an additional source of living other than cultivating lands,” MAFAR Head of Program Engr. Saidona Lawan said.

“This activity is part of our promotion expansion of the production of native chicken, so we are hoping that this intervention will bring a positive outcome to all of you,” Lawan added.

Meanwhile, Assistant to the Provincial Director for SGA and Cotabato City Disumimba D. Rasheed extended his appreciation to the Government of the Day’s project.

“We would like to express our thanks to the MAFAR Regional Office for this intervention. This project will greatly help them because it will be their extra profit aside from farming,” Rasheed said.

“It will also serve as their starting point after they experienced the recent typhoon Paeng,” he added.

Earlier, said beneficiaries attended and underwent a free-range native chicken seminar last year. The recipients of the MAFAR project also expressed their gratitude for the support they received. (BIO/Kasan Usop, Jr.)
