Guys, somebody needs our help!
This is Tatay Rolly. For months, I have seen him sitting in front of 7-11 in Anonas, Project 2, Quezon City (near Kawilihan Bakery). He doesn't really ask people for money, but he willingly receives anything that you'd offer him. When I pass by this route, I give him food and money. Today, I had the chance to sit down and talk to him.
What he really wants is very simple. He just wants to go back to Zambales and start over. He left behind his wife and grandchildren with hopes to find his children here in Manila, but he hasn't found any of them. He wishes to save enough money to go home and raise livestock again-- a goal that he is trying to reach through scrapping for bottles and tin cans that he sells to junk shops.
He told me that if he will raise enough money to start his business again, he will go home. He's alone here in the city, and we all know how difficult it can be, especially for a 70-year old man.
Can we please help him? Any amount will greatly help! I can facilitate donations and make sure he comes home to his family. I promised him I will see what I can do and return to him next week, Monday.
Tulungan natin siya, guys. A little goes a long way. He also mentioned having two toddler grandkids back at home. If you can't make a monetary donation, I can receive and collate donations of clothes, toys, and books for his family.
