Dads accredit SALAG HADR foundation in LSB

THE 19th City Council during its regular session presided over by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy adopted a resolution accrediting the Servant Alliance for Local Autonomy and Growth Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief Foundation Inc. (SALAGHADR) as a member of the city’s Local Special Bodies (LSB).

This is pursuant to the Department of Interior and Local Government Memorandum Circular No. 2019-72 and Article 64, Rule XIII of the Rules and Regulations Implementing the 1991 Local Government Code.

SALAG HADR has 6,217 members from military uniformed personnel, veterans, retirees and reservists.

The Gavel learned that the foundation is unique as it is the only foundation in the country that is composed of military men, both active and retired, reservists and security experts. It has several chapters in Mindanao: Bukidnon, Zamboanga, Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, CARAGA Region, and Davao Region.

The legislation was reviewed and endorsed by the committees on climate change adaptation and mitigation and disaster risk reduction and on laws and rules chaired by Councilors Teodulfo Lao Jr. and Ian Mark Nacaya, respectively.
