welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
On August 18, 2017 1,000 surenderees had pledged in front of Makati mayor Abby Binay, DILG officers, Barangay Captains and PNP officials at the Makati Coliseum – that they will change to be drug-free citizens. This is in conjunction with President Rodrigo Duterte’s Oplan Tokhang project or the so-called war on drugs. However, in Makati it is not brutal. In fact, drive is beneficial for the self-proclaimed drug addicts and pushers.

Mayor Abby said that scholarship programs are in store for them based on their educational attainment. On top of that, a livelihood program is also designed for individual needs if they wish to avail. A thorough Rehabilitation Process was also installed for them to take part which is compulsory to drug dependents for proper monitoring.

Vice mayor Monique Lagdameo who was tagged as livelihood queen was also present during the event, as well as Congressman Luis Campos, Binay’s husband. Among the Barangay Captains present was Barangay Captain Loy Papa whose followers are proud for their Barangay to be active in the said program – to make South Cembo a drug-free barangay.
