August 3, 2018

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte led the inauguration of the Northern Mindanao Wellness and Reintegration Center (NMWRC) at Barangay Casisang, Malaybalay City in the Province of Bukidnon.

Built on a five-hectare land donated by the City Government of Malaybalay, Bukidnon, the PhP 500 million NMWRC was donated by Mr. Kitson Kho of the Friends of the Philippines Foundation and Kinming (Xiamen) Real Estate Co., Ltd. to the Government of the Philippines.

The facility would combine the process of detoxification, rehabilitation, sports and recreation, education, and skills training to its patients who are victims of illegal drugs use.

During the event, President Duterte witnessed the ceremonial turnover of the NMWRC key by Mr. Kitson Kho to Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Francisco Duque III.

In his keynote address, the Chief Executive expressed his gratitude to the donors of the NMWRC, the biggest facility of its kind in Mindanao that would cater to drug abuse patients from Bukidnon and the whole Northern Mindanao region.

Last 25 March 2017, President Duterte led the groundbreaking of the said rehabilitation center in Bukidnon.
