TALACOGON, Agusan del Sur – The Provincial Government of Agusan del Sur through the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office provided ninety thousand pesos (PhP90,000.00) total worth of immediate cash assistance, sacks of rice and canned goods to nine (9) Former Rebels (FR) of this unit on September 17, 2022.
As intended beneficiaries of the Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP), the said FRs received ten thousand pesos (PhP10,000.00) each with rice and assorted canned goods.

The FRs were very happy upon receiving the said assistance. “Dako kaayo ang amoang pasalamat sa gobyerno sa ilang mga tabang nga gihatag kanamo. Bisan paman sa luyo sa amoang mga nabuhat, andam lang gihapon sila sa pagdawat ug pag-atiman sa amoa alang sa pagbalik namo sa among pamilya”, alias “KG” said.

Lt Col Sandy R Majarocon, Commanding Officer of this unit, expressed his gratitude to the Provincial Government of Agusan del Sur headed by Gov. Santiago B Cane Jr for always supporting the needs of FRs and the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office headed by Ms Razel O Montemor for facilitating the immediate assistance of FRs of this unit. “I am glad that our new FRs have now received their immediate assistance as part of the E-CLIP. This assistance will surely answer the immediate needs of our FRs and initially support their reintegration back to their communities. This action also manifests the good collaboration and cooperation of various government agencies and units that amplify efforts to end the local communist armed conflict”, he said.

As may be recalled, the said FRs also underwent series of skills training from TESDA-ADS such as the Land Preparation for Agricultural Crops Production leading to Agricultural Crops Production NCIII, Motorcycle Small Engine Training, and Carpentry and Masonry Training that aims to empower the FRs to be more economically-resilient by enhancing and developing their individual skills and capability.
