Fulfilling his continued service in perpetual motion, District 2 Congressman Erbie A. Fabian distributed another set of rice and corn mill in Vitali District.

Early morning yesterday, Fabian handed the new farm equipment to Vitali Barangay Chairman JoselitoAlavar and Mr. WenesfredoCondeno. Both represented the Farmers Associations of Vitali district.

Fabian told Vitali folks that the said project is the clamor of farmers in his district who are in need of the equipment for their daily livelihood, and he answered their request by providing them with the milling machines which can be used right in their farmlands upon harvest.

In his message during the turn-over ceremonies, Fabian stressed to the recipients to take care of the milling machines for it to last long and would benefit more farmers in their respective villages.

“It is my duty to look into the necessities of our farmers in our district, so I am donating these milling machines to lessen the burden and expenses of our farmers in milling the grains of their farm produce as part of my commitment to the people,” Fabian said.

Sitio Bataan Farmers Association President Mr. WenesfredoCondeno revealed that it’s a dream come true to them that for a very long period of time they were able to obtain such equipment which is essential in their harvest.

Condeno said that such rice and corn mill machine will ease up the expenses in their farmlands, especially in the milling of their harvest which costs them much in its transport and services from private millers in their area.

“We use to transport our harvest several kilometers from our farms just to have it milled, but now that we have our own milling machines, we thanked God that he used Congressman Fabian as an instrument to look into our needs, we treasure it very much in our lifetime,” Condeno said.

Vitali Barangay Chairman Joselito Alavar meanwhile lauded Congressman Fabian for the initiative which benefits not only the farmers, but also the constituents of their barangay for the easy access to farm mills and lessens the burden and expenses in the sowing of finish grain products from their fields.

Alavar thanked the solon for such timely donations of farm equipments which is also at par with the harvest season of farmers this month. The simple ceremonies was witnessed by barangay officials of Vitali, Department of Agriculture representative Mr. Raul Bucoy, Vitali and Sitio Bataan Farmers Association officers and members, and the womens sector of Vitali District.

Fabian is set to distribute similar farm equipment to other farmers’ associations all over his district the coming days. — BhongSimbajon
