While others were ignoring a ninety-one-year old lolo’s plea asking for help to buy his maintenance medicines, two young good samaritans came to his aid. Kim Jong Ban Paclar and Jazmine Marie Ya, who are both working for Qomunica IT Solutions, not only bought Lolo Pedrito N. Galvez’s medicines, they also gave him lunch and some jeepney fare.
In his post, Kim said they saw Lolo Pedrito approaching strangers near Mercury Drug along Serina Street in Carmen, Cagayan de Oro City asking for money for his maintenance medicines since he didn’t have any and hasn’t eaten yet.
Kim said they offered to buy him food for lunch as well as the medicines costing about Php800. He said he had sympathy for Lolo Pedrito since he himself was raised by his lolo and lola.
Lolo Pedrito is from Pagatpat, Cagayan de Oro. He was born on August 28, 1930. Below is his Senior Citizen’s ID.
Before parting ways, they also gave Lolo Pedrito additional money since he will be going to Claveria to visit his relatives.
