TROOPS to the 79th Infantry (Masaligan) Battalion have intensified their awareness campaign against insurgency and Covid-19 thru distribution of leaflets in geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas (GIDAs) in the towns of Toboso and Calatrava.
The move is in support to the government’s effort towards healing the country in the fight against Covid-19.
The leaflet contains information regarding the guidelines of general community quarantine (GCQ), how to further prevent the spread of Covid-19 and peace program of the government like Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (ECLIP) which aims to encourage NPA members to lay down their arms, return to the folds of the law and live a peaceful life with their loved ones.
“The safety and well-being of our people is our utmost priority especially on the isolated areas within our area of responsibility. We have observed that there is a need to extend our help to those areas that is why we will continue our mission not just to attain peace and development in the community but to deliver them accurate and reliable updates regarding Covid-19," Lieutenant Colonel Gerard T. Alvaran, 79th IB commander said.
"We want to make sure that every resident will be equipped with the right information on how to protect themselves since they are also vulnerable to the virus. Let us be more vigilant and cooperate with the government. Together, we can win this fight against Covid-19, " Alvaran added.
