visayan dailyDAR-Negros Oriental will distribute  eight sets of  farm facilities to identified agrarian reform beneficiaries’ organizations, or ARBOs, in Negros Oriental when the required  documents are ready.

Present at  the delivery and initial turnover from the supplier to the DAR were Naranjo, PARPO I Elvira Bation, district officer Fernando Sauro Jr. of  the SRA, and DAR and ARBO representatives.*RG
