DA-10 participates in the PCUP Service Caravan 2023 in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon. 


CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – To provide better opportunities for more urban poor communities, the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-10) provided services and assistance during the Service Caravan in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon on June 22, 2023.

The event is spearheaded by the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP), which strives to improve urban poor populations’ awareness of PCUP programs and services and those provided by other government agencies and organizations and some private partner groups, as well as bring essential services closer to said group.

DA-10 headed by Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado, distributed packets of assorted vegetable seeds, featured audio-visual presentations to apprise the programs and services of the agency, and also conducted a Kadiwa fair, which gave consumers access to fresh, quality, and reasonably priced agri-fishery products from Bukidnon farmers.

One of the event recipients, Charlita T. Genton from Malaybalay City in Bukidnon, expressed her sincere gratitude for the activity.

With the agri department’s participation in the caravan, especially in its provision of seeds, she remarked that it can help households with their daily needs through backyard gardening while aiding in children’s nutrition.

“Ako nagpasalamat sa maong aktibidad kay pinaagi niining mga serbisyo nga ilang gihatag ilabina sa seeds, makatabang na kini sa matag-adlaw nga kinahanglanon sa panimalay pinaagi sa pagtanum niini ug makahatag og sustansya sa atong lawas ilabina alang sa mga bata,” Genton added.

Said activity was participated by different national government agencies (NGAs), the private sector, city local government units (LGUs) of Valencia and Malaybalay and the provincial LGU of Bukidnon.# (MPMTablon)
