Besao MPC supports MLGU relief efforts
The Besao Multipurpose Cooperative (BMPC), the lead Proponent Group (PG) for the DA-PRDP-funded Mountain Province Arabica Coffee Enterprise (MPACE) are actively supporting the relief operations in their community arising from the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).
Together with the municipal local government unit (MLGU), the BMPC have been coordinating with various suppliers of goods to be distributed to the residents of Besao stuck at home amid COVID-19 (New Coronavirus Disease 2019) pandemic.
Darlin Rodriguez, BMPC Manager said that the facilities they acquired for the implementation of their enterprise are now being used for the relief operations.
“The truck is being used to transport food and other necessities from the municipal boundary to the municipal hall for repacking. It is also being used to deliver the goods to households especially those residing in the far flung areas of the municipality,” she said.
Though there are no positive cases in the municipality or the province as a whole, the BMPC has offered the MPACE coffee consolidation center located at barangay Dumdumacog, Besao to be used as a temporary isolation facility for COVID-19 Persons under Investigation (PUI).
“These are the least that what we can do to help our community in this calamity,” added Rodriguez. ### (Elvy S. Taquio, RPCO-CAR InfoACE Unit)
