3 former rebels get CLIP assistance
by PIA–Mountain Province

BONTOC, Mountain Province – Three former rebels in the province who recently returned to mainstream society received livelihood assistance from the national government’s Comprehensive Local Integration Program (CLIP).

Governor and CLIP chair Bonifacio Lacwasan, Jr. and Department of the Interior and Local Government Provincial Director Anthony Ballug handed the financial assistance of P50,000 each to the former rebels.

They also were provided socio-economic interventions, capability building activities, and livelihood trainings conducted by Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office. These were given immediate assistance of P15,000 each last December.

 Lacwasan urged the former rebels to properly use the financial aid as this will help them start and improve their lives. He also challenged them to support all initiatives of sustaining peace and prosperity in the province.

For his part, Ballug said the government, especially the local government units are ready to provide assistance to rebels who will lay down their arms and live peacefully in the community.

Constant life on the run, hardship of life in the hills, and the possibility of being killed are among the reasons the former rebels decided to return to the folds of the law.

To date, the DILG provincial office reported that 17 former rebels availed themselves of the P15,000 immediate financial assistance and the P50, 000 worth livelihood assistance from the government’s CLIP coursed to the DILG.

CLIP focuses on the integration of members of the Communist Party of the Philippines and the New People’s Army who abandon armed struggle and rejoin mainstream society. Cash incentives will also be given to rebels who will surrender their firearms.
