Leyte, 21 October 2014–Ambassador Guy Ledoux of the European Union (EU) has lauded the fisherfolks of Abuyog, commending them for their remarkable resilience, particularly in playing their part in community-based rehabilitation efforts in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda), during a field visit to the typhoon-ravaged community today.
Ambassador Ledoux was joined by Czech Ambassador Jaroslav Olša, Jr., FAO Representative to the Philippines José Luis Fernandez and Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Regional Director Juan Albaladejo in his visit to this municipality.
"It is rewarding to see how the fisherfolks have become more empowered one year after Typhoon Haiyan. I hope that the local communities sustain the hardwork and collaboration to ensure that Abuyog will become more self-reliant. Recovery is, indeed, possible when combined efforts are focused on a common objective," Ambassador Ledoux said.
