Government welcomes former NPA rebels

MAITUM, Sarangani (March 16, 2021) - "Inaasahan namin, na tutulungan kami ng gobyerno, upang kami ay makapamuhay ng tahimik at walang takot kasama ang aming mga pamilya," said a former rebel during the KAMUSTAHAN held at the Municipal Gymnasium on March 15. Aside from the groceries and one sack of rice given to each of the former rebels, the Department of Trade of Industry also provided them with livelihood starter kits last year. As they hang on to their hopes, the former rebels found new allies through the Philippine Army and other agencies of the local government unit of Maitum under Mayor Bryan Reganit. These agencies promised to take care of their safety and security as they follow their newfound path and hold to the belief of a bright future that awaits them. (John James I. Doctor-Joylyn B.
