DANAO CITY, Cebu – Danao City farmers will get indemnity checks from the Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation (PCIC), through the City Agriculture Services Office (CAgSO).

particularly in Bayabas, Sacsac, Lawaan, Cahumayan, Langosig, Danasan, Looc, Poblacion, and
Sta. Rosa, who benefitted from the free agricultural insurance amounting to P683,078.25.

“Nalipay ug nagpasalamat ko og dako sa atong Mayor, sa CAgSO, ug sa PCIC nga naay programa
ingon ani nga libre ug nakabenepisyo jud mi kay dako pud to’ng kawad-on sa among mag-uuma
ang pag abot sa kalamidad.

Kaning free agricultural insurance nga gihatag namo kay nakatabang jud pag-ayo unya ako lang
mong i-encourage nga unta dili ta muurong sa pagpalambo sa gihatag sa atoa nga puhunan.
Padayun gihapon ta’s pananom…Daghang salamat,” Capuno said.

The initiative of PCIC, in collaboration with CAgSO, offers chances to the Danao City farmers to combat hunger and poverty due to agricultural losses in crops and livestock, as this “crop insurance” accelerates development.

In “Crop Insurance,” the investment and expenses of the farmers are returned if they are hit by
storms, floods, and droughts, as well as diseases, pests, or damage to the crops.

Danao City is a component city located in northern Cebu,   /rcg
