Concert eyes 25 local fishermen as beneficiaries

Twenty-five fisherfolk in Puerto Princesa City will be the beneficiaries of a benefit- concert organized by the Catholic Youth Movement (CYM).

Efrel Piñero of the CYM said the concert dubbed as “Hashtag Mo, Himig Ko” aims to raise P300,000 to purchase fishing gears for their beneficiaries.

Piñero said the concert set for May 17 to 18 will feature environmental, family, love and inspirational songs.

“We have two shows each day, 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Ito po ay benefit concert para sa mga fisherfolk o mga mangingisda na maliliit ‘yong mga bangka, ‘yong nangangailangan talaga ng assistance. Sa hirap talaga ng buhay ngayon minsan kasi kapag nagbigay tayo ng tulong [ay] ‘yong nauubos din agad, hindi nagagamit. So ngayon ‘yong gusto naming tulong na ibigay sa kanila is maka-sustain at maipamana pa nila sa mga anak nila or makabuhay sa pamilya,” she said.

She said the venue will be in the VJR Hall in the Provincial Capitol.

The fishermen are from the coastal barangays of Jacana, Bancao-Bancao, and Liberty.

Aside from the fish gears, the organization will also conduct livelihood training for the beneficiaries.

“Naghangad kami ngayon, this time, na sana naman livelihood naman po ‘yong maibigay namin para ma-sustain naman [ang kanilang kabuhayan]. Hindi man po kami kasing galing ng mga ibang groups dito sa Palawan pero asahan niyo na wholeheartedly ibibigay namin ‘yong best namin para sa inyo,” Piñero said.
