Due to the rampant poverty in the Philippines, it is unavoidable to encounter numerous homeless and destitute people every day. We tend to be cautious around them because the sad reality is they could be thieves or exploited members of a crime syndicate.
Luckily, there are instances when true altruism takes over. Suspicious thoughts are put out of our mind and replaced with sympathy.
This is exactly what happened to Facebook user Seggo Loberes and his friend Josh Rabanal. He posted an encounter he had with a naked homeless child on Facebook. Seggo narrated that he and his friend were just driving around when they saw a naked street child. What made it worse was that it was raining really hard.
At first it was all just fun and games. His friend was teasing him that the child looked a bit like Seggo. Eventually, something came over Josh and he decided to help.
Josh got a shirt from the back of the car. Amidst the pouring rain, Josh went outside and dressed the naked child.
Unsurprisingly, the shirt was too big but Josh rolled the sleeves up. The two friends were just happy to help someone in need and make this poor kid's rainy day just a little bit brighter.
Sometimes it doesn't take a whole lot to help. Seggo and Josh knew that. They weren't in it for the praise but netizens couldn’t help but laud them and be inspired by their kind deed.
