Philippine Army’s 53IB inspects road in hinterland barangay

The Philippine Army’s 53rd Infantry “Matapat” Battalion (53IB) inspected the barangay road of the hinterland barangay of Sunop in Dumingag, Zamboanga del Sur on July 31, 2021.

Barangay Sunop is included in the Barangay Development Program (BDP) under the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) and was allotted twenty (20) million pesos (Php 20,000,000.00) for the construction of farm-to-market road (FMR) connecting the barangay’s Purok 4 and Purok 1. The barangay was declared free from communist terrorist influence in April 2019.

This activity is part of the 53IB’s drive to strategically communicate the Army’s transformation to become world class that is a source of national pride by 2028 in line with the Army Transformation Roadmap (ATR).
