mag1Barangay Captain MARIO KADINGILAN did not sleep much the night before. They were so excited upon learning that the government people will visit their place. The ARMM and Maguindanao Provincial Government delegation, consisting of different partner agencies arrived to see the excited faces of the people – children especially were big eyed looking at the convoy of vehicles.

 The Barangay Captain in his speech was teary-eyed while repeatedly saying: ”Dito na ako ipinanganak, lumaki at nagkaisip hanggang sa ngayon, pero kahit minsan, maliban sa araw na eto, ay di talaga kami nabisita ng taga gobyerno (occasionally stopped to wipe his eyes), pasensya na po kayo, pero luha po eto ng kagalakan at pasasalamat at nakarating kayo sa aming lugar.”

 February 26, 2013 is a memorable day for the people of the chosen area. Three hours of rough road, steep climbing of mountainous terrain, amidst lush surroundings, brought us to Barangay Tubak, Ampatuan, Maguindanao. Forty-eight kilometers away is Esperanza, Sultan Kudarat, the only entrance to the secluded but naturally-endowed barangay. Under the forest covering, small but gurgling streams kept our surroundings cooler than what anyone would expect in the hot and humid weather we were experiencing that day. The road we were travelling on was so high up in the mountains, that I felt like ”Piso na lang ang pamasahe, LANGIT NA!”

Inching towards attainment of peace and development in the region, OIC Gov. Mujiv S. Hataman spearheaded the 2013 ARMM H.E.L.P.S. Convergence that finally reached the shores of barangays Matatal and Bus-Bus in the island of Sulu on the 20th of February where the constituents of Sulu led by Prov. Gov. Abdusakur M. Tan welcomed the Convergence Team.

With the theme “ARMM Bayanihan para sa Kapayapaan at Kasaganaan”, the synergy of services aimed to provide joint interventions focused on Health, Education, Livelihood, and Peace and Governance to areas profiled to have high poverty rates in the region. 

sulu pic1Barangays Matatal of Maimbung and Bus-Bus of Jolo were among the identified areas that need immediate assistance. Matatal with a population of 3,100 mainly depends on farming for their livelihood. Poor health services, poor quality of education services, and water scarcity are among the recognized difficulties in the area. Meanwhile, Bus-Bus documented in 2010 to have less than 45,000 populations is considered the most populous area in the province of Sulu. However, fishing as their primary source of income, is fast becoming scarce due to improper aquaculture techniques leading to the deterioration of their fishing industry.

Prominent among the challenges in barangay Bus-Bus are flood during the rainy season, less existence of job opportunities, less support of health awareness and medical assistance, less access to potable water supply, and low quality of graduates in elementary grades.

With these, ARMM H.E.L.P.S. extended available resources that  includes medical mission from the Department of Health (DOH),  distribution of ovicidal/larvicidal trap system from the  Department of Science and Technology (DOST), supplementary  feeding from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD),  skills demo on food processing by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), and ceremonial distribution of fishing gears and dispersal of tilapia fingerlings from the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR).
