Angat Buhay Foundation has delivered its donation of fishing boats to the coastal communities affected by the typhoon “Noru,” locally called “Karding,” in Polillo Island in the province of Quezon. They posted photos of the delivery and turnovers of the fiberglass boats on their social media accounts on 16 March.
A large part of the funds for the boats came from donations of Drag Race Philippines winner Precious Paula Nicole and contestant Eva Le Queen, who held fundraisers after the onslaught of the typhoon in September 2022.
The boat donations are part of the post-disaster intervention projects by the non-governmental organization founded by former Vice President Leni Robredo together with Tanging Yaman Foundation. Other Angat Buhay partners for the project are the groups Angat Polillo Group of Islands and Angat Bayanihan-KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia).
