184 poor Kalinga families receive piglet dispersal

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga, Dec. 26 (PIA) -- One hundred eighty-four poor families from 11 barangays of this city are the latest recipients of dispersal piglets from the joint livelihood project of the provincial and city local government units and the International Association for Transformation (IAT).


The piglets were pass-on gifts to Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program beneficiaries from barangays Bado Dangwa, Gobgob, Cabaritan, Nambaran, Bulanao, Balong, Bantay, Appas, Laya, Dupag, and San Julian.

IAT Director Sison Paut said the provincial government gave 100 piglets while Tabuk City elected officials pooled their financial assistance for the project. This time, City Councilors Zoraida Wacnang, Vicente Martinez, Dada Wandag, and Lucretina Sarol provided P210, 000 financial counterpart. Other elected officials provided the same assistance in earlier pass-on gifts.

Earlier this year, 33 families in Sucbot-Cabaruan, a Pumiyaan cluster barangays of the provincial government, were given piglets through the efforts of Gov. Jocel Baac, Vice Gov. James Edduba and members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

Under this partnership, Kalinga LGU and Tabuk City LGU provide the financial requirements while the IAT is responsible for social preparation, organizing and selection process. This project targets to benefit 5,000 families. Peter Balocnit (JDP/PAB- PIA CAR, Kalinga)
