PATAC (Philippine Advancement Through Arts and Culture) believes that art is a potent instrument in reaching out and inspiring people to act and change their life and their world. It must help in understanding the current issues that people face, oppose and recommend solutions to existing social injustice.

BIGAS HINDI BALA (RICE NOT BULLETS)

"Rice, rice, rice", the cry of the poor farmers in Kidapawan who needed food. El nino has devastated their farm crops. All they needed was rice to help them through the disaster. The government's response, BULLETS. 


We are calling for everyone to help our poor farmers in Kidapawan. A sack of rice cannot bring the dead, but it can help the living. While the calamity is not as popular as a typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan devastation, it begs the same attention and urgency. Donate now.
