Ako Bicol, during its Christmas Party, recently awarded Onrang-Andurog to Director Dennis Del Soccoro of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Region 5 in light of his office’s invaluable cooperation in implementing partnerships that sought to provide means for the livelihood of Bicolano fisherfolk.
Andurog-Bicol, is a special award given by Ako Bicol to an official of a government office based in Bicol who gave valuable aid and support in the mission to provide sustainable programs and opportunities to combat poverty and improve the socio-economic condition of the Bicol Region.
This is an expression of deep gratitude and a symbol of genuine friendship extended in recognition of the valuable contributions that he gave in the ultimate objective of changing the lives of Bicolanos for the better.
Andurog, a Bicol term which means help/assist/be one with, is a disposition that each of us should imbibe within our hearts and minds, as we seek to move as one in order to make the Bicol Region and the Philippines a better place to live in.
Congratulations Sir Dennis! We are, above all, grateful for the boats you helped us acquire for our Bicolano constituents!
