This pandemic-forced lockdown has disrupted our society, it has dramatically changed our lives, our income, and our economy as a whole. One of the industries that are heavily afflicted is the agricultural sector especially the rural farmers. The lockdown has given the rural farmers a daunting task of harvesting and taking their produce to the market. With the covid19-induced lockdown, the rural farmers cannot sell their products. Some of them have taken the extreme step of destroying their harvest.
This lockdown has not only disrupted the chain of supply but it has also hurt those engaged in the production of fruits and vegetables, which are perishable goods and cannot be stored.
It is at this juncture that we have collaborated with one initiative in the Philippines to help the rural farmers transport their produce to other parts of the country. While the government's effort and other groups of individuals have been doing their share of giving rations to the poor and the needy thru canned goods, rice and noodles, we have always thought why not give fresh produce to the needy- that way we help both not just the people who are living in villages but as well as the rural farmers.
It is in this thought that we appeal to you to help us raise the amount to give hope to the farmers and to sustain the life of the needy villagers.
