Janice Burlas, Co-Lead Implementor Daanbantayan Funds for Little Kids And Palawan Funds for Little Kids, says the boat building has begun:
“Magandang hapon! 17 carpenters are working on the 38 yellow paddled boats here in Sitio Calitang, Bucana, El Nido. Thank you so much Metrobank Foundation for partnering with us and believing that together we could make a difference in the lives of fishermen in El Nido and Calauit.
“And the picture to the left is a living expression of ‘Happy Sunday, yellow boat family!’ A morning meeting with the 38 additional beneficiaries of the yellow paddled boats here in Calitang Bucana, El Nido just days before the work on the boats begins.”
