Former M.I.L.F. fighters get government aid

AT least 7,000 former Moro rebels will soon be getting livelihood and employment aid as part of the government’s ongoing peace efforts in Mindanao.

On Monday, the Department of Labor and Employment and the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process signed a memorandum of agreement to include decommissioned members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) to the DOLE Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Program.

It also provides qualified beneficiaries and their families access to DOLE’s Government Internship Program, Special Program for the Employment of Students, institutionalization of Public Employment Service Office and Overseas Filipino Workers Services in strategic areas.

Labor  Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III said they have allocated P100 million for the said initiative.
