Dahil nagbalik loob: Pampanga provincial gov’t gives cash aid to 39 rebel returnees

Nov 14, 2016 @ 20:26

Pampanga Vice Governor Dennis Pineda on Monday, November 14 distributed cash grants amounting P390,000 to 39 former rebels coming from the province’s Sta. Ana town.

The politiko said that each ex-rebel got P10,000 from the provincial government or a total of P390,000.

Aside from the money, Pineda assured the rebel returnees that the provincial government is open to any assistance it could provide for them and their families – be it social, medical, livelihood, education, among others.

He is hopeful that the money handed will allow the former rebels to start a small business and augment the income of their families, especially now that they are integrated into the mainstream of society.

It can be recalled that Sta. Ana Mayor Norberto “Ross” Gamboa initiated the surrender of the rebel returnees – his former comrades in the underground movement.
