DILG-10 intensifies campaign vs illegal drugs thru BIDA program


by Theresa Arlene A. Gambe

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)–Through the administration’s continued advocacy for the fight against illegal drugs, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), in partnership with the Philippine National Police (PNP), has launched the “Buhay Ingatan, Droga’y Ayawan (BIDA) Program.”

“With the BIDA Program, we want to raise awareness on the ill effects of dangerous drugs; we will promote health and wellness; and of course, we will further encourage multi-sectoral participation,” said Wilhelm Suyko, DILG-10 regional director, during the Lambo Dyes radio program, March 24.

The regional director explained that the program focuses on preventing the propagation, manufacture, and use of illegal drugs.

He further shared that, as a nationwide project, the program will require the participation of all agencies of the government and will even include the religious sector.

Activities that are planned to be provided are caravans, bike runs, fun runs, seminars, and symposiums on the avoidance of illegal drugs up to the LGU’s declaration of its drug-free status. These activities will vary and depend on the needs and preferences of the different provinces and municipalities.

“Kung titignan natin, ang BIDA ay magbibigay ng holistic na approach sa ating kampanya, and that is the beauty of working together toward our common goal. At the end of the day, isa lang nama ang ating gusto, ang magkaroon tayo ng drug-free Philippines,” said Suyko.
