SBMA Chairman and Administrator Rolen Paulino said the outreach program is part of the 2022 National Tourism Week celebration, which aims to pay something forward to the community as the tourism sector gradually bounces back from the pandemic.

With the pandemic almost over, the tourism sector, he added, is looking good with the number of tourists increasing.
