As we celebrate our 27th anniversary, Tanging Yaman Foundation, Inc., stays committed to its advocacy of supporting Filipino farmers by purchasing their produce and distributing them to indigent families in Metro Manila.
On July 07 & 12, we distributed 7.7+ Tons of kalabasa from San Gabriel, Pangasinan. Parishes, feeding centers, prison ministry, and Christian communities in Metro Manila excitedly picked up the Kalabasa in Ateneo. Since May 2023, we have rescued 85.6 Tons of Kalabasa from various farming communities in Luzon.
One Social Services & Development Minister in one of the parishes that received kalabasa weeks ago shared this moving story. A neighbor knocked at the door of one of the recipients, asking to borrow P200.00 to buy food for her family. Instead of lending the money, she gave her neighbor the kalabasa with some rice. "Sa tulong niyo po, naituwid ang pamilya nila sa gutom."
May we all be bridges of hope and love to countless Filipinos. AM+DG
