Gasa Alang sa Mangingisda: Visayan Electric provides fishing equipment to Dumlog, Talisay City

Smooth sailing: Visayan Electric together with the fishermen beneficiaries of 

Gasa Alang sa Mangingisda project during the turnover ceremony at Dumlog, Talisay City.

The Philippines, being an archipelago, is home to rich marine natural resources. The country is blessed with diverse marine life that the people use for different purposes, may it be for food or tourism. With all these being said however, Filipino fishermen are one of the most vulnerable and underserved sectors of our community. Many of our fishermen today lack access to modern fishing technologies and still rely on traditional fishing equipment. This significantly affects their efficiency and safety which results in less profits. 

To address the issues currently faced by fishermen, Visayan Electric, through the Kaibigan Batch 6, and in coordination with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, has created the Gasa Alang sa Mangingisda Project. This initiative aims to provide the fishermen of Brgy. Dumlog, Talisay City with new fishing equipment to help them improve their fishing efficiency, thereby increasing catch and their earnings.

During the turnover of materials on June 22, Councilor Richard Bardillas, who was present during the event, extended his gratitude to Visayan Electric for helping out their fisherman, especially now that the rainy season is coming.

“Thank you so much Visayan Electric and to the Kaibigan Batch 6 sa opportunity nga inyong gi share sa among mga mangingisda diri sa Talisay,” he said.

With improved materials and equipment, Visayan Electric is hopeful that the coming weeks will be smooth-sailing for the fishermen of Dumlog, Talisay City.

This initiative underscores Visayan Electric's dedication to improving the lives of Cebuanos, particularly those in vulnerable communities. Recently, the company also extended its support to stay-at-home mothers in Brgy. Sta. Cruz, Liloan, further highlighting its commitment to fostering livelihood development.
