CATBALOGAN CITY, Samar, April 18 (PIA) - Navy reservists of Samar cry for the care of Inang Kalikasan as they engaged an island community for its protection and preservation.

 

Tagged as "Ingatan Inang Kalikasan," some 20 navy reservists led by Lt Commander Genna Mabansag 533 Naval Squadron Commander sailed yesterday, Monday for three hours to the island barangay Cabungga-an, Sto Nino Samar for the gig.

 

About a hundred islanders gathered led by their Punong Barangay Johannes Adana.

 

The reservists advocated the preservation and care for the mangroves that have been abused due to man's activities. Mabansag enumerated the benefits of a healthy mangrove that she said provides food and protects the communities during storm surges.

 

The navy reservists also engaged the villagers in parlor games where they were awarded with grocery items, given snacks and love offerings.

 

"Dire damo an nabisita san amon isla, salit nagpapasalamat kami san pagbisita, ngan mabulig kami pag bantay san mangrove." (We don’t get many visitors to the island, we thanked them for coming and yes, we will help them.), PB Adana said.

Ingatan ang Inang Kalikasan is a regular program of the navy reservists that every year they would sail to different communities to seek help to protect the environment. (ajc/nbq/PIA 8-Samar with reports from Jun Arceno)
