Davao City Veterinary Office Grants Hogs Dispersal to Former UGMO members

PAQUIBATO, Davao City – The City Veterinary Office of Davao together with the 27th Infantry Battalion grants hogs dispersal to former UGMO members in Barangay Malabog, Paquibato District, Davao City last October 13-14, 2020.

After the successful Peace Building Seminar (PBS) in Barangay Malabog and Lumiad in Paquibato District, Davao City last September 15, 2020, the Davao City Veterinarian Office pledges to provide a hog dispersal to selected former members of the Underground Mass Organization (UGMO) who have successfully completed the PBS as beneficiaries.

On October 13-14, 2020, Dr. Cerelyn B. Pinili, Head City Veterinarian’s Office (CVO) represented by Ms. Marila S Ederosas, Ms. Naomi Ruth Aquino, and Ms. Arcelie M Cadiena together with the Community Development Team (CDT) of 27th Infantry Battalion facilitated the dispersal of hogs to the UGMO members from Sitio Taloytoy, Sitio Agsam, Sitio KTC, and Sitio Panulawan all of Barangay Malabog.

The beneficiaries received 10 boars and eight (8) gilt pigs.

Prior to the hog dispersal, the CVO personnel provided lectures on the program scheme and the proper method of hog-raising.

The hog dispersal is part of the City Government’s effort in ending local communist armed conflict (ELCAC) in collaboration with other agencies which aims to provide the former UGMO members with livelihood programs in order to generate additional income.

It can be recalled that during the closing ceremony of PBS in Barangay Lumiad, several agencies of the government provided services to the participants such as hot meals training from TESDA, vegetable seeds and fruit-bearing seedlings distribution from the DA and DENR, food and vegetable packages from the CSWDO and Councilor Dayanghirang respectively and many others.

The beneficiaries from the said barangay convey their utmost appreciation to the City Veterinary Office and CDT of 27th Infantry Battalion for continuously reaching out and providing programs and services, particularly in these challenging times.
