More than 100 Reforming Drug Surrenderees from El Nido Palawan are expected to complete their Community Enhancement and Livelihood Program (CELP), a community-based rehabilitation program of the Palawan provincial government.

The province said that 103 drug surrenderees from four barangays in E Nido, namely; Brgy. Masagana, Corong-Corong, Buena Suerte at Villa Libertad, will graduate from the program tomorrow, January 17. The ceremony will be held at the Municipal Covered Court of Palawan.

“Ang programang CELP ay inilunsad noong ika-7 ng Agosto nitong nakalipas na taon kung saan isinailalim sa labing anim (16) na linggong recovery activities ang mga naitalang personalidad na umamin na sila ay GUMAMIT o nagtutulak ng droga nang sila ay sumuko sa otoridad sa ilalim ng Oplan Tokhang ng Philippine National Police,” the province said.

Under the CELP, surrenderees are given support and guidance to give them another shot in life and help them stand on their feet again, with a new and positive outlook in life.

“Ang CELP ay isang community based recovery program na kung saan ito ay ginaganap sa isang komunidad na naglalayong magbigay ng kinakailangang suporta, payo at serbisyo para sa mga drug surrenderees na na-Tokhang nang sa gayon ay mapanumbalik ang kanilang positibong pananaw sa buhay,” the province said.

The Palawan Provincial government spearheaded the CELP, in partnership with the El Nido municipal government, barangay chairmen, Philippine National Police, Inter-Faith Organizations, Philippine Marines and Community Care Team (CCT).

“Sa kasalukuyan ang programa ay patuloy na isinasagawa sa mga bayan ng San Vicente, Roxas, Brookes Point at Araceli. Habang handa narin ang ibang munisipyo sa Palawan upang tanggapin at maipatupad ang Community Enhancement and Livelihood Project sa kanilang bayan,” the province said.
