Marian Rivera is all about her advocacy this Christmas. The GMA Primetime Queen tells her friends from the press that her heart truly goes out to the survivors of the super-typhoon “Yolanda” in the Visayas that she had no second thoughts about joining hands with GMA-7 in their advocacy to provide livelihood for these people.

 

Marian said, “Marami na rin naman kasing donations na ibinibigay sa kanila na pagkain, damit, etc. Naisip lang namin na mas maganda kung ’yung puwede nilang gamiting panghanapbuhay ang gamitin para makabangon talaga sila. Marami kasi sa kanila, fishermen at ang bangka nila ang talagang ikinabubuhay nila. Since nasira ang mga kagamitan nila, bahay, kailangan nila ulit bumangon. Dito po namin naisip ang ‘Kapuso Adopt-A-Bangka’ campaign.”

Marian said that the GMA Regional, in partnership with the Bantayan Island Association of Hotels, Resorts, Bars, and Restaurants, Inc., will help rebuild and rehabilitate bancas, a major tool of livelihood for local fisher folk and they will start with the Island of Bantayan in Northern Cebu.

Marian said rebuilding a typical bangka will cost between P30,000 to P35,000 and can last for 15-20 years. “Marami po silang nangangailangan kaya po I am personally inviting donors to join us in this cause. Talaga pong tumatawag ako sa lahat ng mga kakilala nating may kakayahang tumulong. Malaking bagay po ito pag naisakatuparan natin,” she said.

Bantayan Back-to-Sea Project accepts cash donation through Fairbank Account Number: 001-02532-1, Account Name: Bantayan Island Association of Hotels, Resorts, Bars and Restaurants, Inc. and Fairbank Account through PNB, Account Number: 1431-00721-9, Swiftcode: ABCMPHMM.
