DSWD distributes Php 100k cash assistance to Decommissioned Combatants in Sultan Kudarat
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) distributed cash assistance to the decommissioned combatants (DCs) in Sultan Kudarat as the Phase III of the Decommissioning Program for Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) – Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF) resumed last September 22.
DSWD Undersecretary for Inclusive and Sustainable Peace Alan A. Tanjusay, joined by DSWD Assistant Secretary for Mindanao Affairs Arnel B. Garcia, and DSWD XII Dir. Loreto Cabaya Jr., attended the payout activities of the socio-economic cash support to the DCs at the Assembly and Processing Area (APA) 5 in the Old Maguindanao Provincial Capitol.
Each beneficiary received outright cash aid worth Php 100,000 which comprises the Bangsamoro Transitory Family Support Package and Livelihood Settlement Grant.
“This money is a seed of new hope, a key to new opportunities and an investment to a new future for our MILF brothers and their families. I hope they find their way and succeed,” Undersecretary Tanjusay said.
For the year 2022, about 5,500 targeted decommissioned combatants will undergo the program through the Independent Decommissioning Body.
The program’s goal is to reintegrate decommissioned combatants to mainstream society by providing them with livelihood and other appropriate programs and services. ###
