Janine Gutierrez is looking for donors who can buy produce of Nueva Ecija farmers
Actress Janine Gutierrez is assisting the non-profit organization Tanging Yaman Foundation in looking for 50 kind souls who can pledge P5,000 each for the benefit of Nueva Ecija farmers.
The funds will be used to purchase 50 tons of pumpkins grown by these farmers. In turn, the produce will be given to several communities that will temporarily be under lockdown after May 15. The actress retweeted the foundation’s post via her Twitter account today, May 14.
The actress emphasized that farmers are some of the most affected citizens by the COVID-19 crisis.
“This project aims to help our brothers and sisters from Nueva Ecija as well as underserved communities who need food,” she said.
