Sa unang tingin mahahabag ka talaga sa kalagayan ng mga ραℓαbσү.
Bukod sa walang nag-aalaga sa kanila, ang pagkain nila ay nakasalalay lamang sa mga magmamagandang loob na mapapadaan at magbibigay sa kanila ng tulong.
Sa kasulukuyang sitwasyon na ating kinakaharap ngayon, lalo silang mas nahihirapang makipagsabayan sa buhay. Kung ikaw ba ay makakakita ng tulad nila sa daan maglalakas-loob ka bang tulungan at mag-aruga sa kanila?
Dahil yan ang ginawa ng mga sakristan ng San Roque Parish sa Mawab, Davao de Oro sa isang ραℓαbσү na nag ngangalang Totong. Pinatuloy nila si Totong sa kanilang kumbento, pinaliguan, ginupitan at pinakain rin nila siya.
Ayon kay Teotristian Gomez Batutay na isa sa mga sakristan, “Gitabangan namo siya kay naluoy mi ug arun makita namo siya [nga] hinlo.
[Tinulungan namin siya dahil naawa kami at para narin makita namin siyang malinis].”
Sa mga larawan na ipinost ng Province of Davao de Oro sa facebook, mapapansin agad ang mahabang buhok ni Totong pati narin ang kanyang balbas.
Wala rin itong damit pang itaas at sobra dungis ng kanyang buong katawan. Dahil narin siguro hindi siya nakaliligo at walang nag-aaruga sa kanya.
Umaasa lamang daw siya sa mga may mabuting loob na nagbibigay ng pagkain kapag siya ay nakikita sa daan.
Sama sama ang pitong sakristan upang siya ay gupitan, paliguan at damitan. Kita sa mga mukha ni Totong ang kasiyahan.
Lalo na nang makabihis na siya at nabigyan ng pagkain, Tila hindi mo na siya makikilala mula sa dati niyang itsura.
Parang ibang tao na ito matapos siyang maayusan.Ayon sa isang netizen na nagbigay ng kumento na si Evelyn Golo Buntrosto, sakristan din daw dati si Totong at kanyang kapatid.
Kaya naman ganoon na lamang ang pasasalamat ni Totong sa kanila.Kuwento rin ni Christabel Orfane, kaya daw pala nakikita nila si Totong na nagsisimba pa rin tuwing Linggo dahil isa pala itong dating sakristan.
Nakatanggap naman ng maraming pagpupuri mula sa mga netizens at sa Province of Davao de Oro ang mga may mabuting loob na sakristan.
Good job boys.
Pinakita ninyo ang katangian ng totoong Kristiyano — matulungin, mahabagin at may malasakit sa kapwa lalo na sa mga mahihirap, nangangailangan at ‘yong mga kinalimutan na ng lipunan.
Kasalukuyang ng nasa pangangalaga ngayon ng San Roque Parish si Totong kasama ang iba pang sakristan.

Lalaking palaboy at namamalimos sa kalye “Fluent” magsalita ng English at dati palang Professor sa Ateneo at UP
Kilalanin ang isang lalaking palaboy na namamalimos ng pagkain at pera sa kalye ngunit “fluent”…
Kilalanin ang isang lalaking palaboy na namamalimos ng pagkain at pera sa kalye ngunit “fluent” kung magsalita ng english.
Sa facebook post ni Faith “Faye” Ares, nakilala niya ito matapos niyang ilibre ng pagkain sa isang fast food restaurant.
Inaya niya itong kumain sa Jollibee dahil mukha itong hindi pa kumakain. At dahil dito ay nagkaroon sila ng pagkakataong makapag kwentuhan.
Ayon kay Ares, ang lalaki ay si Jansen Locsin na graduate ng Ateneo de Manila at dati ding professor sa Ateneo at University of the Philippines.
Ayon kay Locsin, pumunta siya ng Cebu dahil sa isang business opportunity ngunit hindi ito naging matagumpay at siya ay nαℓυgι.
Dahil dito naubos ang kanyang pera at hindi na siya nakabalik sa kanilang lugar sa Bacolod.
Habang sila ay kumakain, napagusapan nila ang economics na siyang Majoy ni Jansen pati narin ang mga eskwelahan na napuntahan na niya sa Cebu.
Pagkatapos nilang kumain ay pinabaunan pa ni Ares ng tubig at 100 pesos si Jansen upang pambili ng pangkain kapag siya ay nagutom.
Ibinhagi ito ni Ares sa facebook upang matulungan si Jansen na makontak ang kanyang mga kamag-anak upang makauwi na siya sa kanilang lugar sa Bacolod.
Basahin ang kanyang buong post:
“Yesterday at 2 pm, while Im ambling inside emall, Im confused whether Ill have my lunch in chowking or jollibee. And then later on, an old man approached me and said fluently, “Miss, Im sorry but I have to tell you something. Please dont get mad. And Sorry to bother you but Im not gonna ask for money, Ill be asking for food to eat coz Im hungry.” I was in shocked for a minute, not because he is a stranger but because he speaks eloquently in english. I was touched by looking at how helpless the old man is. And then I told tatay in respond, “Ok tay, lets go there.” (pointing jollibee) And tatay said, “really?”. I could see on tatays face the joy he felt during that time, his face was brightened and started to have teary-eye. I told tatay to seek for a table for the two of us while Im lining up for our order. After a minute, (medyo nadugay kay taas ang linya) tatay came to me and said, “I thought Ive lost you already.” (awwee 🙁 luoy kaayo as in) You could really see the genuine heart of the old man and I pity him much for that 🙁
While we are eating, weve talked a lot about him. Knowing me, I keep asking tons of questions about tatay. Surprisingly, tatay graduated in Ateneo Manila, he took up economics and was teaching in UP and in Ateneo. He was from Bacolod and his family was there. He got no wife and children. He only have two sister, his father passed away already but her mother is still alive. Tatay is already 70 years old. He came in Cebu for his business which is foreign exchange until everything went wrong on his business and got bankrupt. He went to the Cathedral to ask help from the priest to ask some fund in order for him to go back in his home in Manila either by plane or by ship but unfortunately, the priest were not there. We even talked about some things, he asked me if Im still studying. And I told him “Yes, Im already in college.” He told me to study well for education is very important. I admire tatays wittiness and he told me many things about economics. I was amazed of tatays sharp memory and with his fluent english. He also told me about University of San Carlos, and was comparing it to University of San Jose Recoletos. He told me many things that I could not share. He even know about Mayor Tommy Osmeña and they were friends daw way back before in Manila. I told him why not ask help to Mayor, but he hesitated because he doesnt want than Mayor will see him as helpless as like that because everything has changed already daw. He also worked in USC a long time ago, but unfortunately, the faculties were not accommodating and things went wrong with him since baguhan lang daw siya nun. Tatays name is Jansen Locsin. He really wanted to go home in his place in Bacolod. I was really touched by tatay for he remind me of my lolo, (pinangga kaayo nako akong lolo, he is still alive and couldnt imagine if Ill lost him same as my bereaved father 😥😥)
After we dine in jollibee, we went outside and I gave tatay a bottled water and a hundred peso, a simple help and little things do matter a lot. Tatay jansen is very hesitant to accept the money, but I told him that I wanted to help even in small amount and I apologized to tatay because that is only what I could give him since 2 hundred nlng ang nahabilin sa akong kwarta, and since student pako and got no work yet
But Tatay was very happy, and was again in teary-eye. We waved and bid goodbye to each other, and before I left, he asked my number because he wanted to thank me before he leaves in Cebu. Hell pray for me always daw for I was so kind and generous, and he didnt expect that I would eat with him, talk with him just like ordinary person and helped him in little ways. My heart was shattered into pieces while seeing tatay jansen waving goodbye to me while Im already inside the jeep (padung ko north terminal, my mo uli ko sa amoa sa Catmon) Ug bisag layo na ang jeep, sige lang gihapon ug wave si tatay nako with his helpless smile.
If pwede palang adoption si tatay, why not Nidot kaayo sa pamati ang makatabang bisag ginagmay lang. No return in exchange. So please, if ever you know tatay and his family in Bacolod. Please tell his family that he needs help and he really wanna go home. He is living currently near SM with an old man also. I pray for tatays safety and good health, and that hell be with his family as soon as possible. See you soon tay.
