In support to the Department of the Interior and Local Government’s “Mamamayang Ayaw SA Anomalya, Mamamayang Ayaw SA Iligal na Droga” or “MASA MASID” campaign, the Municipal Government conducted a launching program at the Municipal Conference Hall.
MASA MASID is a program under DILG that aims to fight corruption, illegal drugs and criminality.
Other groups and organizations like the Barangay Councils of the town, Philippine National Police and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) have made pledge to fight problems and issues that surrounds our society especially our problem with illegal drugs.
“This program is timely, I believe that it is a great opportunity for the Government to educate and involve our community in solving our nation’s problems, Mayor Tumang said.”
Tumang added that the said campaign is a wake-up call and a reminder not only to the government but also to the people to go hand-in-hand in making our country a better one.
MASA MASID is a campaign under DILG’s Memorandum Circular 2016-116 which 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.
