BACOOR, Cavite—The city government has launched a 45-day community-based program for recovering and “determined” drug dependents.
Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla said the program aims to rehabilitate the identified drug dependent surrenderers of “Operation Tokhang” of President Rodrigo R. Duterte and the authorities led by Bacoor city police chief Supt. Christopher F. Olzao, Mercado-Revilla said.
Bridges of Hope, a foundation that runs a therapeutic Community to treat people with drug, alcohol, and behavioral addictions, is the private sector partner of the city project.
A certificate of completion will be given to successful participants who attend and complete the 45 days of orientations and seminars, community cleanup, morning exercises, Bible study and sharing, sports fest, film showing, and reflections, along with other activities that will help the drug dependents recover, the mayor said.
Work will be provided to the spouse and children of the participating surrenderers while they are attending the 45-day program run through the Technical Education Skills Development Authority.
Over the next two weeks, the city government will also pursue the following projects: the distribution of motorized boats and pump irrigation system; the implementation of the 2017 National Bible Month Celebration to all Bacooreños, especially to the employees of Bacoor City Hall and Staff; the National Health Month celebration in coordination with the city health department; and the inauguration and blessing of the new ABC Hall Building or the Bulwagan ng mga Barangay.
Meanwhile, the government of Bacoor will conduct Tax Mapping Activities and a Tax Compliance Verification Drive in all areas of the city, pursuant to Section 2 of the Manual on Real Property Appraisal and Assessment Operations.
“Everyone is enjoined to participate in the city’s efforts to improve our tax management systems toward a more progressive city of Bacoor,” said Mercado-Revilla, who was joined by second district Rep. Strike B. Revilla in the regular Monday flag ceremony.
