PCG supports Filipino fishermen in West Philippine Sea


The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) is continuing its efforts in supporting Filipino fishermen operating in West Philippine Sea.

On May 19, the PCG said, it distributed relief packs to 20 fishermen. Each relief packs contained bread and canned goods.

“Umabot sa 20 mangingisda ang nakatanggap ng relief pack na may lamang tinapay at delata na maaari nilang kainin sa gitna ng dagat. Mayroon din itong face mask, face shield, at hygiene kit para hikayatin ang mga mangingisda na ingatan ang kanilang kalusugan laban sa COVID-19,” PCG said.


The distribution of relief packs was conducted during the “capability enhancement training” between PCG and Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) under the Task Force Pagsasanay.

“Layon ng ‘capability enhancement training’ na paigtingin ang kakayanan ng mga PCG personnel sa pagtataguyod ng maritime law enforcement, maritime security, maritime safety, maritime search and rescue, at marine environmental protection sa malawak na katubigan ng bansa,” PCG said.
