Nagbukel Ilocos Sur - In order to address the problem of malnutrition, the Provincial Government of Ilocos Sur has initiated an outline to meet the needs of the undernourished children. Through the establishment of the Ilocos Sur Dairy Production and Processing Center, the province is able to produce dairy milk to be given free to all pre-schoolers in all barangays. Last August 10, 2017, Governor Ryan Singson together with other provincial officials led the distribution of dairy milk and feeding program to the children of Nagbukel, Ilocos Sur. Aside from this, the governor promised 120 days supply of dairy milk for them. “We have enough supply of dairy milk in the province so we will distribute this to all the children where there are identified malnourished not only here in Nagbukel but in the entire province. And to the parents, you must keep and help your children drink the milk we will be supplying for them so that hopefully within the range of four months they will gain weight and that numbers of children who are malnourished will be reduced.” Last July 11, 2017, Gov. Singson in collaboration with Philippine Carabao Center at the Mariano Marcos State University (PCC at MMSU) opened the Ilocos Sur Dairy Production and Processing Facility in Barangay Cabangaran Santa Ilocos Sur. Gov. Ryan said that one of the main goals in establishing a dairy center in the province is to address the increasing number of undernourished children in the province. As recommended by the Provincial Nutrition Council (PNC) and the Department Of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), the dairy products should be given during the feeding programs for the local school children. The Provincial Government of Ilocos Sur ensures that the supply to be given to the children is enough. With this, they targeted not only the municipality of Nagbukel but the entire province. Aside from that they will also bring the said product to all the municipalities of the province and all retail stores serve as one of the income generating program of the PGIS. People of Nagbukel Ilocos Sur thanked the Governor thru their Municipal Mayor Hon. Amalia Cabrera.
