The Northern Luzon Command (NOLCOM) of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has unveiled the miniature replica of the fishermen’s shelter planned to be built in the northernmost island of the Philippines, Mavulis Island.
Mavulis Island also known as Y’Ami Island is part of Batanes Archipelago.
“Bukod sa surface at maritime patrol na isinasagawa sa hilagang bahagi ng bansa, isinusulong rin ng AFP Northern Luzon Command ang mas pinaigting na seguridad at mas magandang kabuhayan para sa mga mangingisdang Ivatan sa Batanes,” PTV said in a report.
“Isa sa nakikitang solusyon ng AFP-NoLCom ay ang pagtatayo ng multi-functional fishermen shelter sa isla ng Mavulis, Batanes, ang pinakadulong hilagang isla ng Pilipinas, kung saan ito ay magsisilbi silungan at proteksyon ng mga mangingisda sa oras ng sama ng panahon,” it added.
In March 2017, officers and crewmembers of BRP Ramon Alcaraz (FF16) together with stakeholders conducted a flag raising ceremony in the said island.
