A member of Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) named Jacob Palao, 56 fights more than 3 times a week will be receiving farm tools and animals from the government.

Aside from Palao, 126 other MILF also received farm tools and animals from the Office of the Presidential Peace Adviser on the the Peace Process (Opapp) in Camp Darapanan.

I thought about it but I didn’t expect it to come too soon,” Palao said.

At my age, I never expected that carrying guns in the name of the struggle would end,” Polao said.

Instead, I will be using plows and carabaos as I farm,” he said, wiping tears.
I can now live peacefully with my family,” he said. 

It’s unlike in the past when I could not tell whether I would come home alive or not,” he added.

103 carabaos; 83 cattle head; goats; rice and corn seeds; rubber and fruit seedlings; and fertilizers were distributed to MILF members.

According to Irene Santiago, Opapp project implementation chair for Bangsamoro, the program that was offered to the rebels was different from previous livelihood programs.

We are looking at changes and these are not just giving and receiving. This is about making social change not only with the decommissioned combatants but also their communities,” Santiago said.
