8 ex-rebels receive aid through expanded irrigation program

BANGUED, Abra –Eight former rebels are the latest beneficiaries in the province of the Expanded Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP) of the national government.

B/Gen. Henry A. Robinson,  commander of the  702nd Infantry Brigade of the Philippine Army with headquarters in Manaoag, Pangasinan, awarded  the checks to the former rebels last March 29 during the first quarter meeting of the Provincial Peace and Order Council.

The E-CLIP, as provided under Administrative Order 10 signed by President Rodrigo Duterte in April last year, is a complete package of assistance for former rebels who were members of the CPP-NPA-NDF, their immediate family members; and Militia ng Bayan members who have surfaced from April 3, 2018 and expressed desire to abandon the armed struggle and become productive members of society.

Aside from immediate cash assistance and livelihood support, Robinson informed the E-CLIP benefits now include provision of housing.

During the initial state of reintegration, the former rebels are accommodated in a halfway house. In areas where there are no halfway houses yet, the concerned local government unit has to take care of them while they are capacitating themselves to eventually live independently and when they feel it is safe for them to go back to their respective communities.

Robinson appealed to the former members to help convince their comrades in the mountains to embrace the E-CLIP.

“Insurgency is not a military problem but a political and economic problem; therefore we need to address it more comprehensively.”
