Meeting this afternoon organised by local community radio station - Bigfm, Bukidnon - and Mucaard-BISAP introducing local developed corn/maize seeds and using organic liquid foliar fertilizers at affordable prices for the farmers. Over 120 people attended. They're starting with 11 farmer demonstrators who are members of PuLPuG setting up small (1000sq m) demonstration plots in the villages to show what the harvest potentially can be. Farmers can then decide if they want to join for the main planting in April. There's a lot of interest!

Herbert Corre is from Barangay Lagandang.
He has been married to Aimee Sabandal for 11 years.
The couple has an 8-year old son, Aidan.
Aidan has cerebral palsy.

On Dec 24-31, 2018, Aidan was hospitalized at Bukidnon Provincial Hospital due to Pneumonia. They spent Christmas at the hospital and was discharged just in time to celebrate New Year in their home.

Herbert worked as a farm caretaker. It was the landowner who told him about PuLPuG. His salary is just enough for the basic needs of the family. Every time a member of his family gets sick, he would usually borrow money from his employer.

“We are relieved that PuLPuG was organized in our Sitio. It provided assurance that we can go to the hospital immediately during sickness. It also gave us the chance to be able to help others. Yes, we have a monthly contribution, but P35.00/month is a very small amount compared to how much we can get from our group and from the Federation.

I am very thankful for the people who came up with the idea of this self-help project. A big THANK YOU also for the people and organizations who supported the Federation. I hope that you will never leave us. Daghang Salamat!”

Congratulations to BISAP and PuLPuG/GRACE! We have ensured that the Bukidnon Provincial Health Ordinance, which has passed its first reading in the Provincial Government Legislature (Sangguniang Panlalawigan), includes PuLPuG. The Ordinance is aimed at strengthening the provision of a comprehensive health care service and it has recognized the key role PuLPuG plays in this.

BISAP highlighted how all the government services are irrelevant if the patient is at home! PuLPuG is the missing link between the patient and the hospital. When you are poor the cost of getting to the hospital and someone to look after you can be insurmountable. The key tasks of the community-based PuLPuG are to provide transport to the hospital and food for 2 people ‘watchers’ to look after the patient.

The Technical Working Group (TWG) that was set up to look at improving the health program’s Service Delivery Network (SDN) in Southern Bukidnon included Romy P. Tiongco from BISAP. Through the work of BISAP, the TWG recognized the vital importance of PuLPuG as the missing link in getting people to the hospital ASAP. The USAID consultants also recognized the importance of this community-based initiative and have included PuLPuG as a key part of the Bukidnon Provincial Government’s Ordinance to strengthen the existing SDN.

This is Arcenio Mandang. He is a 77-year-old PuLPuG member from Barangay Lagandang. On October 2, 2018, while waiting in line at the municipal gymnasium for his senior citizen’s pension, he felt weak and found it hard to breathe. He was brought to the Rural Health Unit and was immediately referred to Bukidnon Provincial Hospital at Kibawe for further treatment.

He was admitted into the hospital on October 2-6, 2018. Doctor’s diagnosis is Pneumonia and UTI.

Because of old age, Arcenio is under the care of his daughter Anita. Anita has three children with Libayaw Dagwayan. While Arcenio is with Anita, his wife lives with another daughter, Elena, who is in Quezon, Bukidnon.

Anita shared:
“Dako ang tabang sa PuLPuG ug Federation sa among pamilya. Dako namong pasalamat nga dunay mga tawo nga naka hunahuna sa pag himo ani nga grupo. Dako sab namong pasalamat sa mga tawo nga nitabang sa Federation. Ang akong bana construction worker. Gamay ra ang sweldo ug igo ra jud sa among inadlaw nga panginahanglanon. Wala mi savings. Kung dunay masakit, mananto jud mi para naay magasto kay sayang man pud kung ang among kabaw ang ibaligya. Makapurdoy jud ug samot kung naay masakit kay 10% man ang tubo kung manantog kwarta, unya dugay pa jud namo mabayran. Samot kadako sa bayrunon. Pasalamat mig dako nga niabot ang PuLPuG sa Lagandang."
