LOOK: The Department of Agriculture (DA) Region IV-CALABARZON opens its first ‘Malasakit Help Desk’ in its regional office located at ground floor of RMIC Bldg., BPI Cmpd., Visayas Ave., Diliman, Quezon City today (February 14, 2019). This is in conjunction with the launching of ‘Malasakit Help Desk’ in the DA Central Office led by Secretary Emmanuel F. Piñol.
Every day, there will be a person assigned to the said help desk to entertain and/or answer questions on DA’s services such as access to agri-fishery information and data, including those involving registration and accreditation, and agri-profiling and validation; access to credit facilities; crop insurance; scholarships; trainings and seminars; and employment.
Other ‘Malasakit Help Desks’ will also be opened in the field offices of the DA CALABARZON soon.
The establishment of the ‘Malasakit Help Desk’ is in line with the DA’s mandate to promote agricultural development and inclusive growth.
It is also supportive of the commitment of President Rodrigo Duterte to hasten the delivery of assistance to the farming and fishing communities and his aspirations for a “Matatag, Maginhawa, at Panatag na Buhay.”
