DOLE provides fishing boats to Isabela town typhoon-affected fishermen

CITY OF ILAGAN, Isabela– The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has provided 10 fiberglass fishing boats to typhoon-affected fishermen in Maconacon town, this province.

Maconacon Mayor Lycelle Kate Vicente said that she personally received the 10 fishing boats from DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III, who visited Tuguegarao City, Cagayan Monday.

Vicente said the beneficiaries were fishermen whose fishing boats were destroyed by super typhoon Lawin when it made a landfall in her town last October 19.

“Based on our assessment, there were 10 fishermen whose boats were destroyed by Lawin and listed them as victims of the typhoon,” she said.

The lady local chief executive thanked the national government for the immediate response and rehabilitation efforts to typhoon-affected victims.
