CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY — Twenty-six regional government agencies and two provincial government units in Northern Mindanao signed on June 23, 2023, an enhanced partnership against hunger and poverty

Leading the signing of the memorandum of understanding (MOU) was the Department of Social Welfare and Development-Northern Mindanao (DSWD-10).
The renewal of commitment and obligation among national government agencies and local government units aims to increase farm productivity and income, ensure food and nutrition security, and mitigate hunger and nutrition, according to DSWD-10 Director Ramel Jamen.
“The power of teamwork and appreciation of the active support of our partners who are willing to go beyond the mandate for the delivery of immediate services to our clientele,” Jamen said.
Jamen said he hopes the MOU signing will begin the active participation of more community-based organizations.
Under the MOU, the government agencies will introduce programs and projects to reduce poverty and hunger. This includes monitoring and evaluation of the activities to ensure their sustainability.
Camiguin and Misamis Oriental provinces will serve as pilot areas of the projects and programs. (Nef Luczon/PNA)
