BALER, Aurora – The livelihood programs that have been given to Former Rebels (FRs) and even other marginalized sectors should be sustained especially in this time of COVID-19 pandemic.

With this, the 91st Infantry (SINAGTALA) Battalion, 7ID, PA under the leadership of LTC REANDREW P RUBIO INF (GSC) PA gave sixty (60) broiler chicks and its supplies as second round of livelihood project intended for eight (8) FRs at 91st Infantry Battalion Headquarters Barangay Calabuanan, Baler, Aurora on May 26, 2020.

The program is also in line with the continuing Enhanced Adopt-A-Brgy Program of the unit by extending help and assistance to the less-fortunate individuals or groups.

The FRs really appreciated and expressed their gratitude to the SINAGTALA troopers for the latter’s generosity and unwavering support to them without hesitation.

LTC RUBIO is optimistic that his unit will continue to support the FRs in one way or another in order to alleviate the living condition of the FRs.

“Rest assured that we will continuously capacitate our FRs through livelihood opportunities for them to effectively mainstream in the society,” RUBIO said.

Meanwhile, COL ANDREW D COSTELO INF (GSC) PA, Commander, 703rd Infantry Brigade, 71D, PA commended the troops for being very active and supportive in such endeavor.

“Our intervention to FRs is very important not just by availing the ECLIP benefits but also giving them opportunities which will benefit their future,” COSTELO said.
