Angeles mayor donates milk to kids of drug offenders under rehab
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. donated 100 boxes of milk formula for the children of drug offenders who are undergoing rehabilitation at the Balay Silangan Reformation Center.
The milk boxes worth P22,000 for ages six months to six years old were handed over to Angeles City Anti-Drug Abuse Council Chief Ricky Saul.
According to a statement from the Angeles information office, the city government established its own Balay Silangan last year to boost its anti-illegal drug campaign.
“Malaking bagay ang donation na ito para makadagdag sa tulong na binibigay ng syudad sa pamilya ng mga offenders na nakatira ngayon sa ating Balay Silangan,” Saul said.
To date, 140 drug offenders have already graduated from the Balay Silangan Reformation Center, according to the statement.
Some 28 persons are still currently housed at the center.
