It is hard for the water to reach the plots because of elevated area and without irrigation the farmers’ production and income will be adversely affected. With this situation, the Department of Agriculture closely monitors the needs of the upland farmers so that they would be able to assist them on what they need.

Nearly 16 years ago, I’ve had an opportunity to be with the DA-Region IV Southern Tagalog (MIMAROPA AND CALABARZON) group who had given away various personal essentials and food items for our Mangyan brothers in Oriental Mindoro. Dubbed as Share-a-Heart Project, it had been organized by the employees’ association. We’d travelled the whole province in just one day to deliver the goods. We had hiked the 1000-feet mountainous village of Iraya Mangyan Tribe in Puerto Galera. Then we headed south to meet the Hanunoo Tribe, for the same reason. FYI: there are 8 different Mangyan groups (Iraya, Alangan, Tadyawan, Tau-buid, Bangon, Buhid, Hanunoo and Ratagnon) in the island of Mindoro and all are distinctively different including their languages. Mangyan is just the collective term used for the indigenous peoples found on Mindoro. Being born in Or. Mindoro, a meeting with Mangyan isn’t unusual to me anymore. I’ve known them, in my elem-days as lovers of sardines (they would put the sauce on their hair just to show their co-villagers that they have gone to the plains and had eaten the famous fish in can – that’s really the story behind it).
