LOOK! Barangay Chiefs Dialogued with Friends Rescued

The Barangay Chairmen of the Municipalities of Kumalarang and Guipos, Zamboanga del Sur dialogued with Project Good Life Students of the Philippine Army’s 53rd Infantry “Matapat” Battalion, called Friends Rescued (FRs), in a simple ‘Meet and Greet Program’ held at the Halfway House in Guipos, Zamboanga del Sur as part of the Local Peacebuilding Forum on Ending Local Communist Armed Conflict (ELCAC) held on October 14, 2021.

Project Good Life for Friends Rescued is an inclusive wellbeing psychoeducation program initiated by 53IB in partnership with various organizations and national government agencies that aims to translate the result of initial strength-based research inquiry among former rebels of the 53rd Infantry Battalion to community extension service.

It is a need-based program for FRs to support Executive Order 70 signed by the President which institutionalizes the Whole-of-Nation approach to end local communist armed conflict in the country.
