The outreach activity, spearheaded by physician-ophthalmologist Kadil Monera Sinolinding Jr., a member of the 80-seat Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) parliament.

The office of Bangsamoro parliament member Kadil Sinolinding Jr. distributed some 25 solar lights on Feb. 27, 2024 to the leaders of indigenous tribes from ancestral enclaves in two towns in Cotabato province.

A doctor and member of Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) parliament undertook an initiative on Tuesday to distribute solar light sets to marginalized tribal communities in Carmen and Kabacan towns, Cotabato. This effort aims to support domestic peace and development programs for the ancestral domains of indigenous people in these areas.

The outreach activity, spearheaded by physician-ophthalmologist Kadil Monera Sinolinding Jr., a member of the 80-seat BARMM parliament, received backing from Regional Minister Ahod Balawag Ebrahim and officials of the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples Affairs-BARMM.

Sinolinding emphasized that the outreach was designed to complement the peace and sustainable development endeavors of Governor Emmylou Taliño-Mendoza, who oversees Carmen and Kabacan, where Moro-dominated barangays fall under the BARMM government.

According to radio reports on Wednesday, Sinolinding’s office, represented by senior staff member lawyer Zaidamin Bagundang, handed over 25 solar light sets to representatives of the ethnic Menufu Aromanen groups in Kitulaan, Carmen, and Tamped, Kabacan.

Funding for the solar light sets was sourced from Sinolinding’s 2023 Transitional Development Impact Fund.

The turnover ceremony took place in Barangay Kayaga, Kabacan, a community comprising Muslim, Christian, and non-Moro indigenous residents.

As part of Tuesday’s activity, Sinolinding’s office also provided allowances to several out-of-school tribespeople undergoing training in livelihood and entrepreneurial skills lectures facilitated by Technical Education and Skills Development Authority personnel in Cotabato province.
