BDP initiatives are being implemented in two distant villages in Davao Oro.
The province administration stated Friday that two distant barangays in Maco, Davao de Oro, received new health centers worth PHP5.6 million under the government’s Barangay Development Program (BDP).
Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy said the health clinics were purchased by the barangays of Magangit and Sangab in Maco town on February 8 and 9, respectively, with the hopes of meeting residents’ health care requirements.
According to Uy, the villages were once strongholds of armed insurgents, but they are now insurgency-free thanks to the “whole-of-nation approach,” which involves bringing together national and local government institutions as well as the security sector.
The National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) allocated PHP1.3 billion to the province in 2021 for the BDP, with PHP20 million set aside for each of the 65 barangays that were freed of communist insurgency.
The BDP is a signature program of the NTF-ELCAC, with the goal of bringing development to former conflict-prone communities. It is part of the government’s whole-of-nation approach to fighting the rebellion waged in the countryside by the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF).
The program tries to eliminate the insurgency’s core causes, including poverty, disease, a lack of education and opportunity, and social injustice, in isolated villages around the country that have been identified as being affected by communist ideology.
In 2021, the BDP aimed to rehabilitate and develop 822 Geographically Isolated and Disadvantaged Areas (GIDAs) that had been developed in numerous parts of the country as a result of the CPP-NPA-NDF. This year, a total of 1,406 barangays will benefit from the BDP.
“The provincial administration emphasizes the necessity of establishing health care facilities, especially in remote locations, so that all barangay constituents can easily receive basic health services,” Uy said.
Veneranda Benaning, the chief of Barangay Magangit, expressed gratitude to the government for providing their hamlet with a modern health center through the BDP.
“We appreciate the government’s efforts, especially because we had hoped to have a health center in our barangay,” she remarked. “They helped our dream come true through the NTF-ELCAC.”
Magangit also received a PHP1.5 million daycare center, which was sponsored from the province’s 20% development budget.
Delbert Canedo, the chief of Barangay Sangab, expressed gratitude for the newly constructed health center in their area, which will provide locals with efficient and high-quality government health services.
