House Of An Ex-Drug Queen Turned Into A Rehabilitation Center
The screen name “Evita Ebora” may not be familiar with the new Generation, A retired starlet, Ebora (Angelica Gallaron-Crespo in real life) was featured in underrated movies in the 1980’s and was linked to illegal drugs in the 1990s.
But the Local government want’s the new generation to remember Ebora as a benefactor, after the local government converted one of her house into a drug treatment center and named it
” Bahay Pag babago”
The three-story house was foreclosed after it transferred ownership several times. It was eventually acquired by the government.
We selected the house for a drug rehabilitation center because the story behind it is very inspiring. Its former owner was a drug queen and we know Evita’s life improved when she abandoned drugs,-Cruz said.
Ebora was linked to large-scale drug trafficking. The charges were eventually dismissed.
Dario Mendoza, 71, Ebora’s stepfather, said the retired actress left the illegal drug trade for good and is now living a quiet life overseas with her family.
She was implicated in the sale of illegal drugs. But after her cases were dismissed, we counseled her and encouraged her to leave that life. She heeded our advice and she now lives a drug-free life,- Mendoza said.
Ebora had acquired several properties in Guiguinto and Bulakan towns.
Bahay Pagbabago shares the building with the town government’s food production, nutrition and science center as well as a disaster evacuation facility. [source]
