Gov. Art Yap is back for more for the people in Bien Unido.
Bien Unido received more assistance and projects as Gov. Art turned over 1.2 million pesos worth of indemnity cheques as accident insurance to 105 farmers for the damages in their rice, corn and livestock brought by the pandemic.
The crop insurance program is one of the major programs implemented by Yap during his time as Department of Agriculture secretary.
The Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation is a government owned corporation created as the implementing agency of the government’s agricultural insurance program.
Aside from that, 10 kilos rice were also given to 240 displaced workers under the tourism sector who have been hit by the pandemic.
Gov. Art also delivered food packs and two thousand pesos cash assistance to 58 families in Isla Maomawan who have been in lockdown because of active covid cases.
Further, to strengthen food security, Gov. Art wants to establish a farmer and fishery market and adding another “tabo” day in every municipality for farmers to have control of their products.
Without water, the governor knows that these projects would take time in materializing. He is allocating 100 million pesos in the 2021 for Bien Unido to complete water projects.
The governor is joined by Mayor Rene Borenaga, Vice Mayor Monching Arcenal, Moises Boniel (MAO), Rojiene Sedillo (PCIC), Charmelita Tecson (OPSWD), and Jimmy Crusio (DSWD)
