Impoverished Haiti farmers pool together $150 to donate to Typhoon Yolanda victims

They have nothing and yet they still want to help out. reports that a group of impoverished farmers in Haiti "have pooled together $150 and to donate to Filipino farmers who were affected by Typhoon Yolanda." The report explained that "the kind-hearted farmers belong to the Smallholder Farmers Alliance based in Gonaives in the northern part of Haiti, and who were themselves victims of Hurricane Sandy last year."


The report noted: "The gesture was reported to Philippine Ambassador to Washington Jose L. Cuisia, Jr. by the Philippine Honorary Consul in Haiti, Fitzgerald Brandt."


The report quoted Brandt, who said, "These farmers are very poor, but the gesture from country to country, from farmer to farmer, from human to human, is 1,000,000 times stronger than the actual amount of the transaction. In this planet full of not so good news, such gestures are priceless."
