The Chimborazo Prefecture, through the Technicians of the Productive Development Directorate, in conjunction with the Sierra and Oriente Cattlemen Association (AGSO), delivered tons of bales of livestock feed to the communities affected by the ash fall volcanic in Guamote canton.
Santiago Tinajero, a member of the Cattlemen’s Association, is the one who coordinated the shipment that took place in several farms in the Mejía canton, Pichincha province.
On the other hand, Diego Calderón, a technician from the Prefecture’s Directorate of Productive Development, thanked AGSO for this significant help for the Chimboracense population that is experiencing difficult times due to this natural phenomenon.
“We are pleased to have friends who support us,” said the Productive Development technician.
In the Galte Laime community, Parroquia Palmira, 5 bales of hay were delivered benefiting 270 people from 4 communities.
Daniel Guaraca, president of the Board of Irrigators, thanked the Prefect, Dr. Juan Pablo Cruz, for the support he is giving. “The prefecture is the only one that is present in these moments of pain of our brothers who have lost everything, thank you for being here with my people,” he said.
The second delivery was made in Palmira Dávalos, where 326 users from 5 communities in this sector benefited from this aid. There are 5 bundles of frozen grass that will serve to feed 1,200 livestock for a few days.
“I want to thank the Prefecture, Fomento Productivo and all the people who have done their bit to support us in this time of crisis,” said Byron Roldán, president of these communities.
We continue to be active in supporting our brothers affected by the ash fall from the Sangay volcano. During these days we will reach out to other sectors with a helping hand.
