President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. assured continuous assistance to farmers in Occidental Mindoro who reels from the impact of El Niño.

The President made the assurance on Tuesday, April 24, during the distribution of financial assistance and other government aid to farmers and fisherfolk in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro.

"Ang National government kasama ang ating mga legislator, kasama ating mga cabinet secretary, kasama ating local government, pinagkakaisa nating lahat ‘yan upang gawin lahat ng kailangan gawin, lahat ng kaya naming gawin upang tumulong sa mga tinamaan nitong El Niño at sa iba’t ibang pang problema," President Marcos said during his speech.

"Asahan ninyo nandito kami upang gawin ang lahat ng kayang gawin ng pamahalaan, kasama ang local government, kasama ang inyong congressman, kasama lahat para tumulong sa taong-bayan," he promised.

President Marcos mentioned that the government plans to provide a dam and a solar powered pump to provide irrigation to San Jose and to the neighbouring municipality of Magsaysay.

"May solar siya, may sarili siyang pinagkukuhanan ng kuryente at ito, mabilis lang ito, hindi masyadong mahal, maraming, magdadala kami rito para mapatubig nanaman," the President said.

"Kasama syempre ‘yung ayuda, kasama pa syempre lahat ng mga ibang inputs ngunit, kahit kumpleto lahat noong ating urea, ‘yung ating fertilizer, kahit kumpleto lahat ‘yung pesticide natin, kahit kumpleto ang ating mga farm equipment, pagka mahina ang daloy ng tubig ay mababa pa rin ang ani," he added.

Prior the distribution of aid, President Marcos and the secretaries of various departments inspected the damage brought by El Niño to San Jose.

"Kaya’t sinama ko na lahat ng mga Secretary, Cabinet Secretary ng iba’t ibang departamento nang makita nila kung ano talaga ang pangangailangan, kung ano ang kailangan gawin, at para ma-implement kaagad ang mga tulong na ibinibigay sa inyo," President Marcos said.
