DAR distributes 965 CLOAs in Kalinga

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga, April 19 (PIA) -- About 745 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) from the seven Kalinga towns and this city got the answer to their long clamor of owning a parcel of land.


The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Secretary John R. Castriciones distributed 965 Certificate of Land Ownership Awards (CLOAs) to ARBs over the weekend here.

The land area covered under the CLOAs totaled to 504 hectares distributed as follows: Balbalan, 4.07 ha.; Lubuagan, 19.66 ha.; Pasil, 12.77 ha.; Pinukpuk, 242 ha.; Rizal, 68.66 ha.; Tinglayan,10.7 ha., and Tabuk City, 146 hectares.

Castriciones urged every CLOA recipient to love and protect his land stressing that without land, there could be no opportunity for a Filipino farmer to get free from poverty. He appealed to them not to sell or dispose off their lands.

“As a farmer myself, I know the joy and satisfaction of someone who owns the parcel he tills,” he said.

“Because of your land, you see bright future for your family and that of your own children,” the official added.

Seeing the need for other farming interventions, Castriciones enjoined the beneficiaries to organize into cooperatives or farmer associations so that they can easier apply for assistance from government service providers.

He assured high hope for change under the present administration with a leader who hears the cries of farmers and listens to their pleas. Larry Lopez (EDT/JDP/LL-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
