• Help assured for Mindanao drought


    The government has readied assistance to communities affected by drought in Mindanao even prior to the eruption of violence in Kidapawan City on Friday, a Palace official said on Saturday. It was reported that two farmers died and several others were injured on Friday when police dispersal turned violent in Kidapawan City. But citing DSWD’s April 1 report, Undersecretary Manuel Quezon of the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office (PCDSPO) said there’ve been 125,228 families or 626,140 persons affected by El Niño in Region 12. This includes the provinces of North Cotabato, South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, including Autonomous Region In Muslim Mindanao and Maguindanao.
