“We recognize the hardships that our fisherfolk experience and the sacrifices they make to give their families a better life. At the same time, we are grateful to Sen. Imee for the continuous assistance she extends to Navoteños,” he said.

“We encourage everyone to make the most of this opportunity. Continue to save up for your families and strive to own more fishing boats,” he added.

Meanwhile, Cong. Tiangco reminded the beneficiaries to help protect the environment from pollution and destruction.

"Most Navoteños, including us, rely on the sea for our livelihood. It's crucial that we keep our seas and oceans free from pollution to ensure a plentiful catch," he said.

The beneficiaries received fiberglass boats equipped with 16-horsepower marine engine and underwater fittings, as well as fishing nets, ropes, and fishing buoys.

The NavoBangkabuhayan Program was launched in 2018 as an initiative to help fisherfolk gain sustainable livelihood. It has benefited more than 300 individuals since its launch.

Also present during the event were Regional Director Noemi SB. Lanzuela of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources – National Capital Region, and Mr. John Romar Pedrigal, Market Specialist from the Department of Agriculture Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Service, and city and barangay officials.

Meanwhile, some 2,840 Navoteño college students received financial assistance from the Department of Social Welfare and Development in cooperation with the office of Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla, Jr.

Cong. Bryan Revilla of Agimat Partylist and son of Sen. Revilla, represented his father and led the distribution of the P2,000 cash aid.

Mayor Tiangco thanked both Revillas for the assistance they extended to Navoteño students and reminded the latter to stay diligent in their studies.
