Aboitiz Group help Rebuild Cebu through Project Banca
To help restore their means of livelihood, Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. together with Cebu-based Aboitiz business units namely AboitizLand, Inc. and Visayan Electric, partnered with the local government units of Liloan and Talisay City, Cebu for the provision of 60 motorized fishing boats to 60 selected fishermen living in the coastal areas to help them recover from the devastation caused by Typhoon Odette.
The ‘Project Banca” is a recovery and assistance program for the fisheries sector which is considered as the most affected sector that sustained damages after Typhoon Odette with over 3,245 boats damaged across the Central Visayas Region affecting 9,000 families. The project aims to revive the livelihood of the fishermen that will enable them to go back fishing.
The project was launched last April 4 in Talisay City with the signing of Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the turnover of the initial 30 new bancas to the city’s identified beneficiaries. The event was attended by Talisay City Mayor Anthony Gerard “Samsam” Gullas; Committee Chair for Agriculture, Aquatic Resources, Wildlife, and Animal Welfare Councilor Jojo Bacaltos; City Agriculture Office OIC Bernard Quijano; Visayan Electric President Engr. Raul Lucero; Aboitiz Foundation Assistant Vice President Danilo Cerence; and the 30 banca recipients.
