Repair of Fishing Boats after Typhoon in South Philippines

In 2016 a typhoon Nock-Ten, known locally as Typhoon Nina, hit the Philippines forcing 380,000 people to flee to evacuation shelters. This typhoon decimated indigenous fishing villages in the south of the Philippines. ACE worked with Rotary to repair fishing boats that were destroyed during the typhoon. This enabled local fishermen to continue to earn income and provide the local population with fish, the most important and traditional food staple.
