THE Depart­ment of Agrar­ian Re­form (DAR) in Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal-north, through the Com­pre­hen­sive Agrar­ian Re­form Pro­gram (Carp), has in­stalled a to­tal of 109 agrar­ian re­form ben­e­fi­cia­ries (ARBS) at Barangay Mabini in Cadiz City on Fe­bru­ary 21.

With the as­sis­tance of the 79th In­fantry Bat­tal­ion of the Philip­pine Army and Cadiz City Po­lice Sta­tion, the agency in­stalled ARBS in the land­hold­ings pre­vi­ously owned by Ber­nadette Gustillo, among oth­ers.

It cov­ers a to­tal land area of 44.6447 hectares.

Mu­nic­i­pal Agrar­ian Re­form Pro­gram Of­fi­cer Jes­san Saquian ap­pealed to the ARBS to raise is­sues and con­cerns on land re­forms to the au­tho­rized agency, which is the DAR.

“The in­stal­la­tion is a proof that the agency is in­deed im­ple­ment­ing the pro­gram man­dated by the gov­ern­ment as mea­sure to im­prove the lives of farmer-ben­e­fi­cia­ries,” he added.

Chief In­spec­tor Robert Man­sueto, in his mes­sage, said their pres­ence is a means of show­ing sup­port to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of gov­ern­ment’s pro­gram.

Man­sueto called on the ARBS’ to help in mon­i­tor­ing the peace and or­der sit­u­a­tion in their ha­cienda.

“For land pro­cess­ing prob­lems, ap­proach the DAR. For peace and or­der prob­lems, ap­proach us,” he told the farmer-ben­e­fi­cia­ries.

Of­fi­cer-in-charge Mu­nic­i­pal Agrar­ian Re­form Pro­gram Of­fi­cer Jade Sollesta ac­knowl­edged the full sup­port and co­op­er­a­tion of the dif­fer­ent groups for the suc­cess­ful im­ple­men­ta­tion of the pro­gram.

Sollesta said the DAR has wide range of sup­port ser­vices up for avail­ment of the ARBS.

“DAR Mu­nic­i­pal Of­fice is al­ways open for your con­cerns and is glad to as­sist you,” she added.

Mean­while, also present dur­ing the ac­tiv­ity were DAR Provin­cial Ad­ju­di­ca­tor Sherif Rafael Ca­mut, and city of­fi­cials and staff.*
