The outreach was dubbed as Kapwa Ko, Sagot Ko-Adopt an Indigent Family Program,” which targets to help poor families in Sitios Lower and Upper Bangkal in Tinago.
Officials of Norala town and elements from the South Cotabato 2nd PMFC, Norala municipal police station, 12th Army Special Forces Company, Regional Intelligence Unit-12, and 1205th Maneuver Company of the Regional Mobile Force Battalion-12 joined the event.
Sitios Lower and Upper Bangkal in Tinago is close to the mountainous boundaries of Norala, Banga and Tantangan towns, and Koronadal City in South Cotabato that was operated by units under the NPA’s Guerilla Front 73-Far South Mindanao Region.



Daniel said the surrender was the result of the continuous military field operations of the Philippine Army.

The communists to show faith in their surrender voluntarily gave the government troops at least 10 low and high-powered firearms, explosives, subversive documents, NPA emblems, and assorted medical kit and supplies.

When the rebels were initially interviewed for a reason they lament the hardship of their plight in the mountains, which was further worsened due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“They wanted to experience real freedom and embrace the government’s peace efforts,” he said in a statement.
