With the aim of being disaster resilient, the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-RFO 10) joins the coastal cleanup in observance of the National Disaster Resilience Month 2019.
Spearheaded by the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council – Region 10 (RDRRMC-10), the DA RFO-10 together with the different government agencies in the region and community members took part in cleaning the 500-meter coastal area in Molugan, El Salvador City, earlier today, July 12, 2019.
“The coastal cleanup has a huge impact. It is not only a noble activity but also a form of information campaign and awareness to the community that we should clean the coastal areas,” said CDRRMC head Teddy Bombeo of El Salvador City.
Meanwhile, OIC-Administrator and City Agriculturist Nolly Adrian B. Gabule highlighted the importance of mangrove as the breeding ground of marine species aside from protecting the coastal areas from strong waves and currents.
