2nd KPMFC visits PWDs in remote areas

Tinglayan, Kalinga – Through ‘Project Manfaruwan’, personnel from the 2nd Kalinga Provincial Mobile Force hiked early morning of April 20 for more than a couple of hours to bring assorted groceries and financial aid to two families in Barangay Dananao.

The 2nd KPMFC crafted Project Manfaruwan aiming to deliver basic services either funded through End Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) or from the pockets of personnel.

Acting Force Commander PLtCol. Daniel Fakat narrated that the company through its Community Affairs section decided to pay a visit to identified persons with disability in Dananao to provide them assistance.

The first family, he said, was the Chappay family where three members, Alvin, Corazon, and Maurine are partially blind due to inherited eye conditions.

The other beneficiary, he added, is 20-year-old Twintwin Onalan who is suffering from cerebral palsy. Fakat said that she is dependent on her mother who is a single parent.

These individuals were among the 20 referred by the punong barangay to the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office. Said office gave the list and information to the 2nd KPMFC

“From the 20, ginidgidwa mi pay lang ta haan mi pay lang actually a kaya nga at one time [ket] ikkan mi amin isuda,” he said.

As for the first 2 families, Fakat relayed that the personnel decided to buy them groceries and give them financial assistance.

“Nag-initiative lang iti tropa ditoy ket sige ah, apan tayo kitan agala tayo lang siguro iti groceries and ikkan lang iti financial a kaya tayo nu mano man iti maurnong tayo iti tropa,” he said.

Project Manfaruwan

Meanwhile, the acting force commander said that Project Manfaruwan is a continuous activity of the 2nd KMPFC and that its essence is to give assistance such as basic services or manpower to community who will ask for it, or to those they just happen to encounter that needed help, especially this pandemic where many are grappling to provide for their family due to the limited movement.

Through the said project, it could be recalled that just recently, the 2nd KPMFC along with the Philippine Army built a restroom in Uma, Lubuagan for travelers to utilize. Also, they are currently renovating a church in Mallongan.

He added that the personnel are willing to give assistance which they could afford to those in need.

“Ang nakikita ko rin kasi dito na siguro that [pagtulong] is innate talaga sa pagka-ykalinga or pagka-igorot tayo, kasdiay a managtulong talaga iti agkailangan iti tulong, and then isa pa, karamihan met lang gamin ditoy a personnel ket taga ditoy mismo, taga Kalinga,” he said.
