PGCot extends financial aid to families of killed soldiers

The Provincial Government of Cotabato has released financial aid and other assistance to families of two soldiers who were killed in the firefight last week between government troops and Maute Group-ISIS in Marawi City.

Cot Governor Emmylou “Lala” J. Taliṅo-Mendoza sent 3rd District of Cotabato Board Member Jonathan Tabara to the bereaved families of 1Lt John Carl Morales of Malvar St., Brgy Poblacion, Kabacan and Sgt. Marlon Baldovino of Brgy Dagupan, Kabacan and gave P10,000 and one sack of rice to each family.

The governor also conveyed her deepest condolences to the kin of Morales and Baldovino whom she said made the greatest sacrifices by giving their lives to protect the civilians.

“They were heroes who gave up their lives for the sake of peace”, said Gov Taliṅo-Mendoza as she appealed to the family to remain strong despite the incident. It is important to boost their morale in this most trying time, according to the governor.

The remains of the two soldiers, both members of the army’s Special Forces, arrived in Kabacan few days ago and were received by their families, relatives, and neighbors.  Morales and Baldovino were considered as heroes by their respective communities, according to BM Tabara. “Many from the neighborhood patiently waited for the arrival of the fallen soldiers and paid their last respects and honor to their remains”, he said.

On the other hand, both the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) which is being chaired by Gov Taliṅo-Mendoza and the Sangguniang Panlalawigan ng Cotabato,   approved a resolution which expresses sympathies and condolences as well as citing the acts of heroism of Morales and Baldovino.

Meanwhile, Gov Taliṅo-Mendoza also lauded all the troops in Marawi City who have been fighting against enemy forces and trying to regain control over government and private facilities in the area. But she said aside from restoring peace, she is also concerned to the safety of civilians in the beleaguered city and the danger of spill over of the attack or escalation of atrocity.

These prompted her to direct the military and the police to double its effort in maintaining peace and order, and security in the province and in implementing Martial Law in accordance to specific guidelines.

She also called upon the constituents to be more vigilant and have full coordination all the time with the authorities in case they see or observe suspicious individuals or events. “Genuine peace is everybody’s concern; we must all do our share to ensure a safe and sound community”, the governor finally said.
