A community in Barangay Tagolango in Bataraza received a sound system and a set of kitchen utensils to be utilized in community events.
Melissa Didik, community organizer said Friday that the distribution on September 05 was part of the allotment from Social Development and Management Program (SDMP) budget for 2019.
“Dati kasi hirap sila sa sound system kailangan pa nila humiram para may magamit sila. Then sa kitchen utensil naman same lang din kailangan din nila humiram kada may mga activities or event ang barangay nila,” she said.
Didik said the barangay allotted P58,000 from the SDMP.
She said that the distributed materials will help the community to have their own sound system and utensils to use whenever they hold activities such as barangay foundation, ramadan celebrations, school activities, weddings, and funerals.
The community established their policy to replace or fix the property, if damaged.
“Sa nakikita namin sa kanila pagkakita nila ng mga dinala namin na kagamitan ay sobra sila na natuwa at nagpapasalamat kasi sa tinagal-tagal, ngayon lang sila nagkaroon ng ganitong gamit at nangako na iingatan nila ito para sa kanilang barangay,” she said.
She hoped that the community will take care of the turned over properties by Rio Tuba Nickel Mining Corporation (RTNMC) to maintain the use for long time.
“Umaasa kami na aalagaan nila ang mga binigay sa kanila gaya ng hangad ng company na kung paano sila tulungan at alagaan upang mapaganda ang kanilang kumonidad at makasabay sa ibang barangay dahil sila ay isa sa malayong barangay ng bayan ng Bataraza,” she said.
