“I finally returned to the sea, to the life I love the most!”
After being forced to sell his boat, Wafic Samra spent years away from fishing. He was thrilled to go back to the profession he grew up practicing after the Fishermen Cooperative Association in the Chouf Coast received six new fully-equipped boats. Wafic was one of many fishermen in the area to regain access to the sea. Today, he anticipates more growth as he witnesses the ongoing rehabilitation and construction works in the Jiyeh Port.
“The new port will include a fish market, a boat maintenance workshop, storage rooms, boat parking lots, railways, sidewalks for the visitors, and more!” exclaimed the Head of the cooperative Mohamad Kojok.
