THE Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has distributed 266 hectares of land to Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) for the first five months of this year in the province of Zamboanga del Sur.

Zamboanga del Sur Agrarian Reform Officer Arthur Soria said the distributed parcel of lands represents 10 percent of their target to distribute 2,556 hectares of land to ARBs in that province this year.


Soria said the distribution of lands to the identified ARBs will continue throughout the year to meet DAR's targeted land distribution of 2,556 hectares this year.

Soria said DAR has a total of 29,723 ARBs comprising of 17,960 Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries' Organizations (ARBOs) in 280 Agrarian Reform Communities (ARCs) throughout the province.

Meanwhile, Soria said they are conducting this month a subdivision survey in Mahayag, Zamboanga del Sur covering a land area of 166 hectares.

He said the land will be distributed to 145 ARBs once the survey will be completed and with the approval from DAR regional office.

On the other hand, Soria said they have lined up activities for the 26th anniversary celebration of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program and 5th anniversary of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program Extension with Reforms that started June 15 and ends July 1.

The activities include feeding program, distribution of bags with school supplies and raincoats to the school children at the Agrarian Reform Community in the village of Sumpot, Dimataling, Zamboanga del Sur. (Bong Garcia)
