The farmers of Kidapawan gathered last March 30 and demanded for support from the government because of the effects of El Nino. However, the Kidapawan City Police used guns in the dispersal, injuring and killing some of the farmers.
In an interview with Pep.ph, Robin however enumerated the celebrities who helped him with the donation to the farmers. Included in the list are Mariel Padilla, Bianca Gonzales, Angel Locsin, Luis Manzano, mother and son Karla Estrada and Daniel Padilla, and sisters Anne and Jasmine Curtis to name a few.
According to Robin’s manager Betchay Vidanes, the farmers already received the rice donated by Anne and her sister Jasmine yesterday, April 4 while others are still on the way. Betchay also stressed that Robin did this without any malice.
“Definitely no politics! Pumunta kami ni Robin for PEACE. Gusto niya na makiramay sa mga magsasaka na namatayan. Walang ipinagkaiba ang kanyang ginawa sa mga namamatayan sa Manila na pinupuntahan niya agad para makiramay. Kinausap niya ang mga magsasaka na maging mahinahon at umuwi sa bahay nila. Nagbigay siya ng mga bigas dahil ‘yon ang hiling ng mga magsasaka at ng mga katutubo,” she said.
