In a Facebook post, Richard Cavosora, proprietor of Magdalene Organics, put out a call on behalf of Philippine Carabao Center, its affiliate dairy farmer cooperatives in CALABARZON, tdelivery service Lalamove, and Calaboo, a social enterprise that produces dairy products incubated in Gawad Kalinga.

The post begins by talking about how smallholder carabao dairy farmers are especially vulnerable during this time because if their products are not sold right away, they spoil.

He adds that since carabao milk is a niche product, it is hard to get it to the places where it is usually purchased.
