The Provincial Government of Palawan has launched the Community Enhancement and Livelihood Program in Kalayaan town last February 8.

The Palawan provincial government and the local government of Kalayaan and Brgy. Pag-asa signed a memorandum of agreement for the launching of the said community-based project.

The CELP is a 16-week recovery program intended for the surrenderees of Oplan Tokhag of the Philippine National Police.

“Layon nito na mabigyan ng pagkakataon na maibalik ang dignidad ng mga nasangkot sa iligal na droga upang sila ay muling makapamuhay ng maayos,” the province said.

Present during the MOA signing were Gov. Jose Ch. Alvarez, Kalayaan Mayor Roberto Del Mundo and Vice Mayor Hermoso Ornopia, Punong Barangay Rogelio Hingpit of Barangay Pag-asa, Provincial Administrator Joshua Bolusa at Provincial Information Officer Atty. Gil Acosta, Jr.

Likewise present were members of Sangguniang Bayan of Kalayaan, Philippine National Police and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA)-Palawan.

“Sana tuloy-tuloy na itong programa ng Provincial Government ay maipaabot natin sa lahat, hindi lang sa Kalayaan kundi sa ibang barangay ng mainland at isla; mahalaga sa akin ang programang ito,” Alvarez said.

Roselyn B. Umpacan, chief of the CELP Field Operations, led the presentation k Community Enhancement and Livelihood Program.

“Ibinahagi niya ang mga magagandang karanasan sa pagsasakatuparan ng programa tulad ng matagumpay na tatlong araw na pagsasailalim sa in-house training ng Community Care Team (CCT) ng Kalayaan na siyang magiging katuwang ng CELP Technical Working Group sa pagpapatupad ng programa,” the province said.
