DAVAO CITY – The City Social Services and Development Office (CSSDO) said 40 former rebels who surrendered in 2011-2013 already received financial assistance from government.

Annabelle Lugo, focal person for Comprehensive Local Integration Program said the cash were given by the city government through the Community Social Services and Development Office, Philippine National Police, the 69th Infantry Battalion and 84th Infantry Battalion.

“Now that they already received their P15,000 last October 8 and last December 9, another livelihood program worth P50,000 each is also given to them by the different agencies. Now they are starting to put up their own businesses.” Lugo said.
