Provision of food supplies to every Abra household continues with the Taraon Ni Abreno (Provision of an Abreno) making a stop in Bucay last Tuesday.
Spearheaded by Gov. Ma. Jocelyn Bernos, the Provincial Government of Abra offices and in coordination with barangay leaders, the Taraon program will provide food supply to every household in the 27 municipalities of the province.
Last Monday, residents of La Paz were able to get their “Taraon.”
Last Sunday, it was in the towns of Daguioman, Lacub, Sal-lapadan, Tubo and in the barangays of Bagalay, Basbasa and Patucannay in Tayum town.
Last Saturday, the beneficiaries were residents of San Juan town and barangay Salucag in Luba.
Residents of the town of Lagangilang were the recipients last September 16, a day after Dolores and Pilar residents were given their share.
Last September 15, not only food supplies were given to residents of the far flung barangay of Talipugo in Lacub but also vaccines. Provincial health workers were able to administer 112 Johnson and Johnson and 73 AstraZenica vaccines to locals there. To reach one of the most remote villages in said town, the TOG-1 Tactical Operation Wing Northern Luzon of the Philippine Air Force provided air support.
Also on September 15, the people of Villaviciosa and those in barangays Bolbolo, Dintan and Villavieja in Pilar were given food packs.
On September 13, it was the turn of residents of San Isidro and some barangays in Villaviciosa and Bangued received help from the provincial government.
Some of the earliest recipients are residents of Manabo (September 10), San Quintin and Penarrubia on September 9, as well as Danglas and Langiden on September 8.
The food pack consists of baked produces and eggs.
Bangued baker John Eric Zapata said that the ayuda is a big help for bakery owners because they can sell their produces in the time of ECQ.
Lagayan was one of the first towns to get ayuda when Bernos declared the province under enhanced community quarantine last September 1 which was lifted on the 20th when the province was downgraded to a General CQ status.
