The Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation (PCIC) Regional Office 5 through the Municipal Agriculture Office (MAO) led the awarding of PCIC cheques to the town’s farmers, Camalig Municipal Hall, Brgy. 2, Poblacion, Camalig, Albay.
A total of twenty-five (25) farmers from Brgy. Tumpa, Bariw, Libod, Caguiba, Gapo, Taloto, Quinuartilan, Tagaytay, and Binitayan have availed said cheques.
This intervention is in line with the PCIC and LGU-Camalig’s mutual initiative in addressing damages and losses brought by the recent parade of typhoons, allowing said individuals to recover agricultural and structural damages, restore farming inputs, and boost income opportunities.
The continuous implementation of sustainable agricultural strategies is also in consonance with LGU-Camalig’s viable response to the impacts of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
