After Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) slammed Eastern Visayas Region in the last quarter of 2013, by far the most damages are evident to property—school buildings, houses, and other infrastructures, agriculture and fisheries.
More than a year after Typhoon Yolanda’s onslaught, influx of assistance were brought to those affected families who were left homeless and no means of livelihood.
A Filipino-American couple from Pittsburg, USA who visited Tacloban in February 2014 have been determined to help for their kababayan. Funding for two (2) fishing boats made of fiber glass was donated through the CFO’s LINKAPIL Program.
In coordination with the Negrense Volunteers for Change Foundation, Inc., through its “Peter Project”, a project aim to provide fishing boats to fishermen in impoverished coastline barangays who are in need of boats to augment their family income, two (2) fishing boats have been fabricated. These fishing boats will be awarded to Mr. Edito dela Cruz and Mr. Archie Yap, both from Naval, Biliran by the end of June 2015.
