Unsinkable! Stella Quimbo turns over life-saving boat to community

Rescuers in Barangay Tumana, Marikina can save more lives when there’s a typhoon, thanks to a gift from Congresswoman Stella Quimbo.

The lady lawmaker recently turned over to barangay officials a brand new rescue boat, which can withstand harsh conditions.

Named the Unsinkable Porta Boat, the vessel was made by Filipino inventor Ronald Pagsanghan in a bid to help communities improve their rescue efforts.

The boat was a donation from the University of the Philippines Alumni Association of Greater Chicago (UPAAGC). Quimbo helped facilitate the choice of Barangay Tumana as one of the beneficiaries.
