WE HAVE TO HELP. That painful video of a farmer using a dumptruck load of tomatoes, members are asking us to do a Rescue Buy. We just needed a couple of days to recover some energy and mental bandwidth after Pampanga. We needed more information how to go there, how to do it. I think we are ready to go again. We hope you will help us. We spoke to the farmer in the video, his name is Davis. The dumping happened at a place called Numpaling Namal, at the boundary of Asipulo and Tinoc towns in Ifugao. He dumped 3 tons of tomatoes. Davis was not the only farmer who was forced to do this. We have other videos but you will see the same thing. We have to do something, we have to help.
URGENT TOMATO RESCUE BUY. We are seeking for your compassionate support for the farmers of Asipulo and Tinoc. If you give P450, we shall give you 10 kilos. Please forgive us for the slightly higher price, we want to give the farmers more.

Back read the story:
KAMATIS LAGI NA LANG BA MAGTITIIS? How much our farmers are struggling with over production and mal-distribution. Sobra nang hirap at pagtitiis. We’ve seen enough pictures and videos of farmers dumping crates of tomatoes by the roadside. But this? Ga-dumptruck na ang itinatapon. Sobra na nakakalungkot ito.
Kitang-kita na ang ganda ng kamatis. Three tons. Kung walang bumibili, ano ang gagawin ng farmer kundi itapon na lamang. Kung may magsabi sa inyong magaling na walang over-production, na walang problema, show them this. May mas masahol pa sa walang ginagawa, yung bulag. Gusto nilang makita ang kamatis? Nadun pa hanggang ngayun sa Numpaling Numal, sa boundary ng Asipulo at Tinoc towns, Ifugao.
“Hu, basura”, this farmer cries. Huhuhu, mismo. Sa kabila ng gutom sa maraming pobreng lugar dito sa Maynila, dumptruck dumptruck ng pwede pang kaining kamatis ang tinatapon na lamang ng ganito.
The farmer cries “Ukinana”. We must forgive him. Anger, helplessness, surely sadness. Kahit sino naman, mapapamura, kahit kayo, kahit ako. Ukinana.
