Postcard from GlobalGiving's Visit

The following is an e-postcard from Zamil Akhtar, a GlobalGiving Representative in the Philippines:

Every day, students trickle in to plant mangroves at the shore of Talim Bay. Truth be told, I didn’t know what mangroves were before I visited De La Salle University’s Talim Bay Coastal Resources project. The mangroves cover the shoreline now, and the villagers assure me that it helps protect the marine life. What is unhelpful is the illegal fishing offshore, the harm of which the mangroves can hopefully offset. Fishing is the life blood of the community here, and even on a day with a good catch, life is hard. By helping the villagers plant vegetable gardens, the people at De La Salle also hope to aid in their food security.
