VMA turns 26,
holds tree planting
Mangrove planting and coastal clean-up activities were conducted in Brgy. Punta Taytay, Bacolod City, yesterday, in line with the 26th founding anniversary of VMA Global College, led by its president, Juan Orola Jr.
Around 6,000 mangroves were planted at the seawall area in the barangay by personnel from the Civic Welfare Training Service, CBP Batch 16, Civic Action Group for Emergency Response Services, Adventists Emergency Response Unit, and the Deaf Society of the Philippines Bacolod Chapter, a press release from the school said.
Twenty-two sacks of non-biodegradable wastes from the mangrove area were also collected by the BSHRM4 and BSMar-E2 Delta, the press release also said.
“Let us discover and preserve the beauty of nature in the promotion of anti-marine pollution as a maritime institution,” Orola said in the press release.*
