Udenna Foundation’s “Sagip Saka” program recently helped 100 farmers transport their ube and coffee produce from Mabato, Calamba, Laguna to buyers in Metro Manila.

This brings the total number of beneficiaries to 1,800 farmers nationwide.

“The ‘Sagip Saka’ program was born out of our desire to help Filipino farmers bring their crops to markets where they are most needed. We understand that this is particularly difficult during the enhanced community quarantine so we and our partners are providing logistics services for free,” said Udenna Foundation's representative.

Udenna Foundation, with the help of Chelsea’s Worklink, and Phoenix Petroleum dispatched a Worklink delivery truck to pick up and deliver the produce while Phoenix Petroleum ensured that the truck was serviced, fueled and ready to go.

Udenna Foundation has also partnered with AGREA Move Food Initiative, a social enterprise committed to delivering fresh produce directly to its customers.

Artadi said that they will continue to support the logistics needs of farmers during ECQ.
