The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently turned over P49.6 million worth of infrastructure projects in Barobo, Surigao del Sur to improve the quality of lives of farmers and residents in the municipality.
DAR Regional Director Julita Ragandang said the multi-million project, funded under the DAR-Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Project Phase III (ARISP-III), includes a seven-kilometer NRJ Dughan-Javier farm-to-market road improvement and construction of a 36.8 meter flatslab bridge.
“The projects are expected to benefit 834 agrarian reform beneficiaries and thousand other residents of Barangays Dughan, San Jose and Javier, all of Barobo, Surigao Sur,” Ragandang said.
Surigao Sur Governor Johnny Pimentel lauded the DAR for its efforts and concern to the residents of the municipality and advised project beneficiaries to take good care of the project.
For Dughan Barangay Captain Alex Maceda, the project is a dream come true.
