Posted to Kalinaw News (Apr 12, 2020): Ex-NPA couple welcomed their firstborn child (By 10th Infantry Division)
MALITA, Davao Occidental – Rebel returnee couple @Bornic and @Ing-ing welcomed their firstborn child in the Delivery Section of Malita District Hospital during the celebration of Araw ng Kagitingan last April 09, 2020.
The couple surrendered last February 6, 2020, due to hardship and uncertainty they were facing with the pregnancy of @Ing-ing. They were also wary of the common practice of their communist terrorist organization that the newborn child of NPA couple will be taken away so that they will remain “functional” in the organization. The child will then be given to their contacts to be raised as a future combatant.
According to @Bornick, he will never let his daughter join the communist terrorist. He will teach her to be a god-fearing and a productive citizen of the community. He also added that he would help the government by encouraging his comrades, who were deceived by the communist terrorist, to surrender and to return to the folds of the law.
In her statement, the new mother @Ing-Ing gave her utmost gratitude to the government, especially the 73IB and LGU of Malita and Davao Occidental for their sincere service in taking good care of them. “The government helped us to have a new and brighter life,” she remarked. As my husband said, we will not let the terroristic ideology of the CPP-NPA deceive our daughter. We will pay back the excellent services of our government troops to us by allowing our daughter to grow as a law-abiding citizen of this land, @IngIng promised.
Lt. Col. Ronaldo G. Valdez, 73rd Infantry Battalion Commander, was grateful for the safe delivery of the baby amidst the infectious disease COVID-19.” We hope that the couple, together with their baby, will live their lives peacefully outside of the clutches of the communist terrorist group. The 73rd IB will always be here to assist them in any capacity that we can, Lt. Col. Valdez, ended.
