THE LAHUG River in Cebu City. — THE FREEMAN

THE ONGOING Manila Bay clean-up may soon be replicated in Cebu City. Commodore Robert Lim Joseph of The Manila Yacht Club, who was among those who spearheaded the Manila Bay initiative, discussed this on Wednesday with the Rotary Club of Metro Cebu (RCMC) members, together with the past president of the Rotary Club in Manila. “I want to tell the media that we will now prioritize Cebu because Cebu is the microcosm of tourism in the Philippines,” Mr. Joseph said. He encouraged his fellow Rotarians and all Cebuanos to adapt and participate in the movement, saying he wants immediate actions, not just plans. “Join us in saving Manila Bay. Join us in saving Cebu,” he said. He also assured financial support for the project. Cebu City Agriculturist Joey Baclayon said they welcome the RCMC initiative, noting that they have been doing this kind of activity for three years now and for this year, they will be focusing on the 10 major rivers in the city. — The Freeman
