Farmers are often snubbed and taken for granted here in our country. Even though our primary source of income is agricultural in nature, we consistently fail to safeguard the rights of our hardworking farmers.
This story will surely make you sympathize with them even more.
Mang Jhon is a 64 year old farmer whose only companion at work is a carabao. His carabao helps him in his difficult day-to-day job that provides little for his family.
Then one day, tragedy struck. Mang Jhon found his carabao's lifeless carcass left out in the field.
The cuplrits were not identified, but people in the area highly suspect that it was perpetrated by thieves who wanted to take advantage of the poor animal.
Mang Jhon, as shown in the picture could only cry over his heavy misfortune. Without his carabao, his farming is even more difficult, if not downright impossible.
Truly, even the poorest of the poor are not spared in this cruel society.
Netizens were deeply affected and showed compassion for the farmer. Hopefully, the local government unit can do something to help this poor man out.
