Barangay residents receive rice as Christmas gift

piaTUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan, Dec 28 (PIA) – Residents of Barangay Capatan this city has received 120 sacks of rice at 10 kilos each recipient family as Chirstmas gift from the Provincial Office of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).

Barangay Kagawad Erwin Baccay said they are lucky to be chosen as recipients because there are many indigent families in their barangay.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer Virgilio M. Acasili  of Cagayan said instead of spending much for their Christmas party, they preferred it to be this way as per instruction of DAR Regional Director Marjorie P. Ayson.

Though there were poor residents who did not avail said Christmas gift, Acasili said they gave the decision to barangay officials as to whom they will distribute the 120 sacks of rice.

He added that as per report of the barangay officials, other residents were already availed of other Christmas packages from politicians, the reason why they are other families who were not included for this gift-giving.

Acasili said that while they had already given their share to Yolanda victims in the Visayas, they must have to see that right within their neighbors are people also in need. (GVB-PIA2)
