Cabuyao Mayor Mel Gecolea made a farmer’s day by buying his entire watermelon harvest.

In a Facebook post, Gecolea said he decided to buy the harvest of hardworking farmer Mang Emong so that he could earn something and would not be taken advantage of by those who would try to shortchange him.

Gecolea said he would turn over the watermelons to the Cabuyao Malasakit Producers Cooperative to sell for profit.

The cooperative is made up of farmers, laborers, bakers, and other workers from the informal economy.

His pakyaw pakwan is for a good cause!

“PAKYAW KO, BENTA MO

Bilang tulong sa isa nating masipag na magsasaka na si MANG EMONG ay pinakyaw po natin ang kanyang tanim na pakwan upang siya ay kumita at hindi na mabarat pa. Ang mga pakwang pinakyaw natin ay mapupunta naman sa Cabuyao Malasakit Producers Cooperative nang sa gayon ay maibenta nila ito at magkaroon din ng pagkakakitaan.

Ang Cabuyao Malasakit Producers Cooperative ay binuong samahan ngayong panahon ng pandemya ng mga ordinaryong manggagawang Cabuyeño tulad ng farmers, laborers, kaminero, panadero, at iba pang kabilang sa informal economy.

Abangan po ang kauna-unahang episode ng aking Vlog na YorMEL on the GO para sa buong kwento tungkol sa pagpakyaw natin ng pakwan at pagtulong kay Mang Emong. 👍
