Benguet farmers donate vegetables to Taal evacuees

The Filipino spirit of Bayanihan is very much alive in our fellow kababayans in Benguet.

Seeing and hearing from news reports of the situation of the evacuees in the different evacuation areas in Batangas brought about by the Taal volcano unrest which started last weekend, they have initiated to share what the province have for those who are really in need.

Benguet farmers donated some 3,000 kilos of various vegetables to those affected by the eruption of Taal Volcano in the province of Batangas.

The vegetables were brought to Lipa, Batangas, and they say this will not be the last because they are planning the second delivery of vegetables to be delivered to Ibaan town still in Batangas.

"Mas nangangailangan sa baba kasi pinapakita sa TV ay talagang kawawa naman yung galing Batangas," vegetable trader Danny Tanacio said.

"Tayo po yung naglilikom ng donations ng different farmers dito po sa La Trinidad Trading post. Tayo po nag-arrange ng sasakyan, paano po madadala doon at sino po tatanggap sa Batangas," La Trinidad Municipal Police chief Major Roldan Cabatan said.
This is not the first time the Benguet farmers did a donation, last year they  also donated their harvests to typhoon and earthquake victims.
