BAGUIO - Benguet farmers donated some 3,000 kilos of vegetables to those affected by the eruption of Taal Volcano in Southern Luzon, its police chief said Thursday.

The donations were brought to Lipa, Batangas, while more vegetables will be sent to Ibaan town.

"Mas nangangailangan sa baba kasi pinapakita sa TV ay talagang kawawa naman yung galing Batangas," vegetable trader Danny Tanacio said.

"Tayo po yung naglilikom ng donations ng different farmers dito po sa La Trinidad Trading post. Tayo po nag-arrange ng sasakyan, paano po madadala doon at sino po tatanggap sa Batangas," La Trinidad Municipal Police chief Major Roldan Cabatan said.

Last year, farmers also donated their harvests to typhoon and earthquake victims.
