The much needed help came through SPICMA initiated by Bro. Jos and Mr. Patrick Phelan-executive director. We adopted an island barangay called Tinigban in Carles Iloilo composed of 40 families. The plan is to provide 40 fishing boats for each family. We organized them into cooperatives and formed an association to respond and help each other in times of need and emergency evacuation by using all these boats. Last Feb. 28, 2014 the first set of 22 boats were commissioned and turned over to the fishermen.
