IN SUPPORT of the government’s National Greening Program, an anti-crime group, in cooperation with its partner agencies, recently held a tree-planting in Barangay Malihao, Badian, Cebu.
The Philippine Anti-Criminal Association Inc. (Pacai)’s advocacy was in response to the nationwide campaign of President Benigno Aquino III to be able to plant 1.5 billion trees in 2016.
The Pacai-initiated activity was held in partnership with the Badian Municipal Government led by Mayor Roburt Librando; National Police Commission 7 represented by Atty. Homer Mariano C. Cabaral; radio DyAB, which celebrated their 17th anniversary, represented by Marlon Belleta; Barangay Malihao Teaching Force; and the Cebu Provincial Police Office with Chief Insp. Virgilio Apurado as representative.
Pacai vice president Winifredo P. Eribal, in a press statement, said that the activity was also made in solidarity with the worldwide campaign to address global warming.
“This year will not simply be a milestone. Rather, it will be an opportunity to heighten Pacai’s commitment to the country. The organization will continue to engage in anti-crime campaign in partnership with the law enforcement agencies today and beyond,” he said.
