In 2019, the Dangerous Drugs Board entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with PARTI as part of the board’s initiatives to capacitate stakeholders on technical knowledge in providing effective community-based interventions to reintegrate victims of substance use and abuse back into society.
Ricablanca’s various groups have also provided relief operations, feeding programs and support services to senior citizens.
