Inapload ko itong picture nato para kahit papano makatulong kay lola. Hndi ko sya kilala pero nakaka awa ang kwento nya, pansinin nyo nka kandado yung pinto, araw araw syang ganyan humihingi ng tulong para makakain, may isa syang anak patay na yung apo nya nasa ibang bansa, ang kasama nya sa bahay ay yung pamangkin. Ang bahay na yan ay luma na 100square’meter) Sabi ng mga kapit bahay ay hinihintay nlang mamatay ang matanda, talagang pinababayaan na nila, dahil ibebenta yung bahay at lupa nito, pls i-share nman natin ito.#AMEN.

I uploaded this picture to help this old woman. I don’t know her personally, but I find her story heartbreaking. Notice the lock on the gate. Everyday she looks through the gate to ask for food. She has one child who’s already dead and a grandchild who lives abroad. She lives with her niece/nephew. They live in an old house measuring 100 square meters. Her neighbors say they’re intentionally neglecting her so they can sell the house and lot when she dies. Let’s please share this post. #AMEN
(This photo was just passed on to me so I posted it. This woman lives in Bagongbuhay St., Balik-balik, Sampaloc, Manila. Please do not curse.)]
Netizens had mixed reactions to the issue. Some confirmed the old woman’s situation, while others said not to believe everything they see and read on social media.
