By Keneath John O. Bolisay

 One hundred forty (140) barangays from 15 municipalities in Caraga region have benefited from P120.7 million worth of infrastructure projects from the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan – Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) implemented by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
    The projects that included water systems, road rehabilitation and footbridges to health stations, school buildings and day-care centers ensured that social services were met in far-flung areas.
    “The department has successfully turned-over 140 infrastructures or sub-projects to the respective local government units who availed of the regular Kalahi-CIDSS and the performance incentive Makamasang Tugon,” DSWD Caraga regional director Mercedita P. Jabagat said.
    “The project doesn’t only provide infrastructure to these communities but more importantly, it creates a pool of volunteers who will steer development in their towns and this is done through the technical assistance extended for them in trainings and workshops,” Jabagat said.
