The rice distribution was an undertaking of the provincial government, in partnership with the Fifth Mechanized Infantry Battalion of the Second Mechanized Infantry Brigade under Brig. Gen. Facundo Palafox III.

Palafox, himself, led the distribution of the rice, which came from “Go Negosyo.”

The MILF camps,, which received rice assistance were the camp of Commissioner Abdullah Macapaar, or more popularly known as Kumander Bravo, in Sitio Kura-kura, Barangay Tamparan in Munai town; the 127 Base Command, under Aleem Ansari Murad; and the 125th Base Command under Officer-in-Charge Division Commander Sameon Pingno in Tangkal.

Palafox urged everybody to help each other to defeat the unseen enemy, which was the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

“Ito pong panahon na ito katulad ng ginagawa namin, ay panahon ng pagtutolongan, kasi nasa gitna ho tayo ng tinatawag nating pandemic, iyong COVID-19. Isang kalaban na hindi ho natin nakikita, so tayo dapat ngayong panahon na ito, hinihikayat ko na magtulong-tulong tayo, isang paraan lang para manalo ng kalaban nating hindi nakikita”, said Palafox.

Pingno received the rice aid, and vowed that it would be shared among the civilian constituents in the town.

“Kahit mag lugaw nalang, gagawin nila mabigyan lang ang karamihan”, said Pingno.
