The City Government of Cotabato purchases another amphibious excavator as part of its intensified flood control program.
This equipment is used in digging up the silt materials in creeks and other tributaries of the Rio Grande de Mindanao that cause flooding in Cotabato City and its neighboring towns during the rainy season.
This facility is sponsored by the National Meat Inspection Service of the Department of Agriculture and is going to be erected at a 3.7 hectare land procured by the City Government of Cotabato.
City's Assistant Social Welfare Officer Veranda Samson said, the competition is part of the observance of the Nutrition Month last July. A team was created by the DSWD 12, its Nutrition Council, and the DA 12 to visit and inspect all participating Day Care Centers if their gardens have the presence of leafy vegetables, legumes, and fruits.
The activity was participated by the City Police Office, and other concerned agencies like the Philippine Marines, 6th Infantry Division, Bureau of Fire Protection, SWAT, Office on Social Welfare and Development, Office on Health Services, Cotabato Regional and Medical Center, SOCO, and the EOD Team.
