MARINE LIVELIHOOD

Coastal communities suffer the direct brunt of strong typhoons. Thousands of fishermen lose their boats, gears and livelihood in general in almost every disaster. ADRA has been helping fishermen recover their livelihood from their losses by providing boat repair and livelihood assistance.

ADRA Philippines Boat Repair Project-01

ADRA has worked together with local governments and fishing communities to re-establish marine life with artificial coral reefs. After Typhoon Yolanda, ADRA and local NGO partners supported fishermen in Panay, Capiz in creating jackstones that will eventually turn into coral reefs. Fishing is not a luxury but serves as the main livelihood for most of the families in coastal areas. Recovering the ecosystem brings generational benefits.
