The municipal government of Daanbantayan officially launches the operation of its Balay Silangan Reformation Center in Barangay Pajo on Tuesday, July 2, 2024.

Fifteen drug reformists comprise the first batch of beneficiaries to undergo a one-month reformation program that includes spiritual and mental health counseling, personal hygiene, exercises, lectures, gardening, and skills training.

After their month-long reformation program in Balay Silangan, the reformists will then undergo an aftercare program to assess their needs and that of their families, and provide them employment and livelihood interventions.

Present in the launching ceremony were Mayor Sun Shimura, Vice Mayor Elver Ali Abucay, SB Member Jupiter Roy Rosell, PDEA 7 Regional Director Emerson Margate, former Mayor Vicente Loot, PDEA Provincial Officer Milba Mojado, TESDA Coordinator Janice Lucmong, PMAJ Jan Christian Bautista, and Fr. Onie Rosaroso.

The reformation program has been made possible through the collaboration of LGU offices and in partnership with government agencies, MADAC, MSWD, RHU, TESDA, PNP, PDEA, and Sangguniang Bayan.

Balay Silangan Reformation Center of Daanbantayan is the first reformation facility in Cebu Province that was built and established for this purpose.
