A netizen shared in social media a sad plight of a family which is making a pedicab or more locally known as “trisikad” as their home. They were spotted somewhere along the National Highway in Balingoan town and reportedly were on their way to Cagayan de Oro hopefully to receive Christmas presents.
As shown in these photos courtesy of Louie F. Valmores, all of their belongings are either inside or attached on two trisikads. You can also spot two children sleeping inside one of the trisikads. The family seem to be stopping to cook their meal. In his Facebook post, Louie stated that the family has no permanent address and seem to stop and sleep wherever they are at nightfall.
Meanwhile, a caller donated P1,000 after Louie posted the photos in Facebook.
The photos were taken last December 13 and there’s no info whether they have arrived in Cagayan de Oro. Maybe you can spot them along the highway and sahre your blessings and Christmas presents they have hoped to receive.
