KALABASA NG PAGASA. We are writing this on behalf of our farmers in Purok 7, Licab, Nueva Ecija. You’re seeing their situation with the pumpkins — walang presyo, labis na binabarat. You’ve seen their hanging bridge — walang makadaan, labis na kalunos-lunos. There are places all over Nueva Ecija where we can more easily get pumpkins, but we do not want to. We want to get our pumpkins here. Sila ang mas nangangailangan. Our two choices is for our truck to wait on the other side of the river, and the farmers cross the pumpkins as best as they can, by floating them across on tire interiors or by navigating the cables. The other option is to take a very long and muddy detour that can be navigated only by carabao cart.
These are the challenges we face in our desire this farmers. You cannot believe the feeling when we learn that the kalabasa has been finally loaded and the truck is on the way back to RuRi House. Parang ang laki-laking accomplishment. In many ways it is.
Please will you support the ongoing KALABASA NG PAGASA effort? If you give P399, you share when the truck gets back is 10 kilos of pumpkins.
