    The Vice President was in Basilan for a series of events.

    At 10:45 am, the Vice President attended the groundbreaking of Angat Buhay Weaving Center and Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) Signing between Lamitan City LGU and C.C. Buencamino Architecture Ground Breaking Weaving Facility in Brgy. Buahan, Lamitan City, Basilan. Since 2018, Lamitan City has been identified to be among the priority areas of the OVP empowering Yakan women weavers who are beautifully turning “tennun” into placemats, malongs, and table runners, an art passed on from generation to generation. The Office of the Vice President (OVP) partnered with the Yakan weavers by providing support in the production of “tennun”.

    At 1:30 pm, she visited the Lamitan City Tulip Garden in Brgy, Ubit. The artificial tulips are made from 45,000 recycled plastic bottles that have been collected from 45 barangays across the city in exchange for school supplies and grocery items. The garden pathway is also made of shredded plastic bottles mixed with cement, sand, and gravel. This initiative was part of Mayor Rose Furigay’s intensified solid waste management campaign. The garden was formally opened on September 23, 2019.

    At 2:20 pm, she attended the turnover of certificate of award and check to Isabela City in Isabela City Hall. This will fund the project “Angat Buhay Mangingisda ng Isabela”, which will help the fisherfolk procure a solar powered chest freezer, motorized bancas, and gill nets.
