Vegetable farmers in Barangay Silangan in Quezon City where the African Swine Flu (ASF)-infested hogs were buried are also seeking government assistance.

The local farmers said they are now in a tight financial bind as their vegetable plots were bulldozed to give way to the mass grave of the ASF infected hogs.

Vegetable farmer Demetrio Santos said poor residents like him do not have any means of livelihood except for the vegetables they gather from their plots.

“May mga apo akong pinag-aaral. Ang anak kung babae di sapat ang kinikita bilang vendor. Iniwan na siya ng kanyang asawa (I am supporting my grandchild’s education. The income of my daughter as a vendor is insufficient. Her husband has already left her),’’ Santos said.

After receiving the news, Mayor Joy Belmonte on Monday vowed to provide the affected urban farmers of the city’s financial support.

She instructed the concerned city hall personnel to look for vacant lots where they can plant their vegetables.

The affected vegetable urban planters will be gathered where city hall personnel may assign vacant lots for them to plant their vegetables.

Records showed that as of Friday, at least 3,700 hogs have been culled in Barangays Bagong Silangan, Payatas, Pasong Tamo, Tatalon and Roxas.

All culled pigs in the city will be buried at the mass grave in Barangay Bagong Silangan.
