NSFA, Panacan, Davao City – The Eastern Mindanao Command (EMC) and the Presidential Management Staff (PMS) facilitated an all-expense-paid tour of eighty-nine former rebels (FR) composed of four male and 84 female in Hongkong on July 30 to August 2, 2019.

It can be recalled that the foreign trip was promised by President Rodrigo Duterte during the Former Rebels Assembly on December 21, 2017, at Naval Station Felix Apolinario, Panacan, Davao City and during their visit in Malacañang sometime February 2018.

The FR beneficiaries who are now undergoing an integration process are from different areas of Eastern Mindanao who surrendered to EMC’s units.

Before the trip, the beneficiaries underwent an orientation on July 29, at the Philippine Army Grandstand, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.

The purpose of the tour, which includes a visit to some historical places in Hongkong and its market place is to allow the FRs to experience the life in a modern urban setting and provide them a better and another perspective in life.

“The tour contributes in the continuing therapy and integration process for these beneficiaries as they slowly adapt to the normal life,” Lt. Gen. Felimon T. Santos Jr., Commander of Eastern Mindanao Command said.
