Catbalogan relaunches commitment to MASA MASID

Catbalogan City Government headed by Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan relaunched the city’s commitment to the MASA MASID program last November 29, 2016 at Sangguniang Panlungsod Session Hall.

Mamamayang Ayaw Sa Anomalya, Mamamayang Ayaw sa Ilegal na Droga or MASA MASID is the program of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) aimed at encouraging communities to take a proactive stance in the government’s fight against corruption, illegal drugs, and criminality.

Under DILG Memorandum Circular 2016-116, the program has four main thrusts: information and education campaign in communities for government programs against corruption, illegal drugs and criminality; creation of a reporting mechanism on illegal drugs-related activities; formulation of community-based rehabilitation programs; and revive the spirit of volunteerism by creating a volunteer-friendly atmosphere for organizations that wishes to be partners for change.

Present during the said activity were the barangay chairs of different barangays of the city, from the religious sector, from the Philippine National Police, Philippine Coast Guard, Bureau of Jail Management & Penology, and other sectoral representatives who affixed their signature to the commitment to the said program.
