Recently, the Department of Labor and Employment, Batangas Provincial Office (DOLE BPO) provided motorboat engines to members of Samahang Magdaragat ng Butong (SMNB) in Taal, Batangas.

The motorboat Engines and accessories amounting to 30,000 each (inclusive of 1 year GSIS Personal Accident Insurance Premium Coverage) were distributed to 25 fisherfolks with a total of ? 750,000.

They were grateful to DOLE and to the official of SMNB for the assistance provided as they consider it as a valuable livelihood support to start the new year. One of them remarked,

“Maraming Salamat po sa programa ng DOLE. Ito ay napakagandang panimula para sa amin sa darating na bagong taon. Mabuti nalang at may ganito. Kung wala nito, malamang na mamroblema pa din kami kung paano kami mag sisimula sa dating na bagong taon.

Mr. Leovigildo Aguila (Project Coordinator) stated similar compliment to the donors and assured that they will maximize the use of the equipment to improve and sustain their livelihood.

 



“Lubos na nagpapasalamat ang pamunuan at miyembro ng Samahang Magdaragat ng Butong sa malaking tulong na ibinigay ng DOLE sa pamumunoni Sec. Bello. Salamat sa pagdinig sa aming kahilingan na magkaroon ng tulong upang maragdagan ang aming mga makinang pangingisda, lalo't kulang ang aming kakayahan upang makabili kami ng aming sariling makina. Ito po ay pagyayamanin nang Samahang Magdaragat ng Butong at sisikaping mapalago pa upang maipagpatuloy namin amg magandang nasimulan ng DOLE”

In his speech, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III stressed that the President’s top priority is to support and provide assistance to Filipino people who suffered under the COVID 19 pandemic.

“Ang bilin ni Pangulong Duterte, ito ay pera ng taong bayan. Kaya dapat gamitin sa kapakanan at ikabubuti ng taong bayan. Nawa'y patuloy tayong maging malusog at ligtas sa hamon laban sa COVID.”

The fishermen, along with the other attendees, were greatly delighted on the affirmative stance of the administration to help the Filipino people.
