    Story

    Felimar was a Divemaster on Malapascua but due to the crisis, he hasn't worked as a diver now for 8 months and has no other choice but to go spearfishing on the reefs where he used to guide divers.

    Felimar was a Divemaster on Malapascua, he has been spearfishing with his grandfather's wooden speargun on coral reefs he used to dive on and is struggling to feed his family.

    Felimar is over half way to his target to build his boat!

    Please donate as half a boat won't float!

    After hours of spearfishing, it's 9pm and this is all his family has to eat and sell to buy rice. It's getting harder and harder to spearfish on the reefs where he used to guide scuba divers.

    He needs to raise £800 to buy a fishing boat so he can go and fish in deeper water for skipjack tuna.

      Thank you to everyone who made this happen, by sharing, donating, subscribing and following! After a long month of work on the boat, Felimar finally went fishing just in time before Typhoon Rolly and Ulysses made it impossible to fish. Check www.reefscan.org for the next fundraising which will help Gina process and preserve her fish. #smallscalefisheries #fishing #fisheries #WomenInFisheries
