LGUs urged to form MASA MASID teams
by Peter A. Balocnit

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Local government units are urged to organize Mamamayang Ayaw sa Anomalya, Mamamayang Ayaw Sa Iligal Na Droga (Masa Masid) steering committees and teams to be oriented this month.

Helen Lacuesta of the Department of the Interior and Local Government provincial office and also the focal person for the Masa Masid said only Tinglayan  has  complied with the organization of social facilitators, oriented on their roles, and  enrolled Masa Masid volunteers.

“Organizing Masa Masid is in line with the priorities of the administration to rid the country of illegal drugs, criminality, and corruption by encouraging the involvement of the community through a multi-sectoral and mass-based approach to ensure effective and efficient implementation,” Lacuesta said.

It is geared towards achieving improved governance starting at the local level and decreasing crime activities, she added.

The activities to be undertaken after the social facilitators are oriented and volunteers are enrolled include advocacy to heighten the level of awareness on the country’s problems, encouraging community participation and partnership building, capacity development for Masa Masid groups, and reporting system in place.

Lacuesta said they will monitor compliance of LGUs on the project based on Memorandum Circular 2017-112 or the revised guidelines on the implementation of Masa Masid.

Kalinga was declared “drug-cleared” province in February but was reverted to its status as a drug-affected province after the arrest of alleged pushers and users and confiscation of prohibited drugs and drug paraphernalia.
