“WALA KAMING PAGASA MABENTA ANG PRODUKTO NAMIN”. We want so very much to help a family of LASONA farmers from Santa, Ilocos Sur. We are calling on the group and all the saints to help us. When we passed through this town last month on the way to meet the Cauliflower farmers, I made a remark “na sa dami ng mga bayan na nakapangalan sa mga santo at santa, naubusan na pagdatindg sa bayan ng Santa, kaya Santa na lang ang tawag”. None of my passengers laughed, perhaps because the joke was lame, perhaps because they were sleeping. This effort now, for the same town I was making jokes about, is DEAD SERIOUS. These farmers, Ben and Sonia, are praying to all the saints, they are praying to Rural Rising for help.
We hope our group can help. Let me share our chat, read what their daughter had to say about her family’s desperate situation. The traditional buyers, those who pay a measly P7/kilo, have stopped buying. There is just too much Lasona in the market. Even that meager opportunity, which will not pay for the fertilizer bought and the fertilizer needed for the next crop, is closed to them. Neither can these farmers bring their Lasona to sell in the local market. That option is closed to them too. They need business permits they cannot get, they need to anti-gen test kit they cannot afford or have access to. There is no testing center in Santa, and they have been restricted from going to the next town, because they need anti-gen tests to pass the the military checkpoint. They are prisoners in their own town, they are locked inside a cage of despair! You can feel it, she wants to cry out loud to the heavens, she can only laugh, and that laugh is the saddest laugh you will ever see or hear. Her husband looks utterly powerless beside her, he cannot even walk because of an affliction. What do you do if everything is closed to you—you cry, you laugh, you beg, you hope.
This is a Pity Buy, this is Mercy Buy, this is an Urgent Rescue Buy—call it any thing you want. We have been told, chastised, criticized by people who know better na “hindi sustainable ang pa-pity-pity effect ng farmers,” and “hindi bibili ang members because of that.” Say what you want, if this brings help to the Advinculas, we shall post this, boost this, send it off with a prayer. How can we not show this? How can our hearts not break to see this? How can we not help?
LASONA EMERGENCY RESCUE BUY. We are looking for as many Rural Rising member to help the Lasona farmers of Santa by supporting the expenses of a truck we shall send there. If you contribute P250, your share shall be 3 kg of freshly-harvested Lasona. We shall give your riders their own Lasona. We shall donate Lasonas to a hungry barangay in NCR.
