LA TRINIDAD, Benguet—Farmers and traders in this province have begun gathering vegetables that will be shipped to the areas that were struck by Typhoon Odette (international name: Rai).

“We hope to send on Monday night whatever we have collected from our members,” Agot Balanoy, public relations officer of the League of Associations at the La Trinidad Vegetable Trading Areas, told the Inquirer on Monday, Dec. 20.


She said about 4 tons of assorted highland vegetables worth P80,000 have been collected from the donors so far.

Local vegetable farmers in the province have been regularly helping disaster victims in the country, such as those displaced by the eruption of Taal Volcano, by donating part of their harvest.
