MISAMIS OCCIDENTAL (PIA)–Paglaum Multi-Purpose Cooperative, a Department of Science and Technology-Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (DOST-SETUP) Cooperator in Misamis Occidental donated and delivered sacks of rice to each municipality and city of Misamis Occidental through the local government unit (LGU).
The cooperative delivered a total of 290 sacks of rice to the 14 municipalities of Misamis Occidental and 150 sacks of rice to the 3 cities of the province.
On top of these, Paglaum MPC also donated rice and groceries valued at P253,409 to the Plaridel Port and motor cab drivers, Philippine National Police (PNP) and checkpoints, and other sectors.
Amidst the economic haze brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, Paglaum MPC anchors on a public-private partnership to ensure that the help intended for the people is delivered effectively.
DOST Misamis Occidental also believes that the heart of Paglaum MPC is worth a science and technology partnership to swiftly change the plight of those unreached sectors who are economically affected by the pandemic. (DOST Misamis Occidental/PIA10)
