0 734

Vice President Leno Robredo is not done helping the Filipino fishermen whose boat was rammed and sunk by a Chinese trawler in Recto Bank.

Robredo returned to San Jose, Occidental Mindoro to bring financial assistance from private donors and equipment from her Angat Buhay partners.

Robredo, in a Facebook post, said the destruction of their boat led the fishermen to turn to entrepreneurship and to look for other ways of making a living.

The fishermen were happy with the all in one GPS tracking system and fish finder, which they could use while the F/B Gem-Ver is being repaired, she said.

She sure has made the fishermen happy!

“Sa ating pangako na magbigay ng karagdagang tulong para sa mga mangingisda ng F/B Gem-Ver na nawalan ng kabuhayan, bumalik tayo sa San Jose, Occidental Mindoro, ngayon naman sa Isla ng Ilin, para maghatid ng tulong pinansiyal mula sa private donors at kagamitang pandagat mula sa ating #AngatBuhay partners.

Dahil sa pagkasira ng kanilang bangka, marami sa mga mangingisda ay nagnenegosyo ngayon at naghahanap ng alternatibong hanapbuhay. Kaya naman laking tuwa nila nang iturnover natin ngayon ang ilang all-in-one GPS tracking system at fish finder, mga equipment na magagamit nila sa maliliit na bangka pansamantala habang kinukumpuni pa ang F/B Gem-Ver. Sana ay makatulong ito sa kanilang paghahanap-buhay,” Robredo posted.
