Army soldiers find four kids abandoned by rebel parents for two years

BACOLOD CITY, Negros Occidental, Philippines – An Army unit in the northern part of the province has reported rescuing four children whose parents, all members of the Communist underground, have abandoned them for close to two years now.

The children – Ali, Lea, Julie, and Artchie (not their real names) – were reportedly found by troopers of the 79th Infantry Battalion and have already been turned over to the town social welfare office.

Tge 303rd Infantry Brigade said in a dispatch that the children claimed their parents are members of the rebel movement, what the Army labels as “Communist Terrorist Group” in Guihulngan City, Oriental Negros.

The Brigade said the children were reportedly left to the care of someone named Dianita Batcheller in Taibak sub-village in Hilub-ang, Calatrava town since October 2020.

“They never heard from them since then,” the dispatch also said.
