Victims of the Taal Volcano eruption have been finding ways to survive every day. Some are trying to recover their properties and livestock.
Some are waiting for the relief goods and other donations. Some have resorted to whatever they have at a very low price just to have some money to buy their food.
This was what a netizen named Ivan Almanzor of Agoncillo, Batangas was trying to do when he posted on Facebook that he was selling his DSLR to have some money to buy their food.
With the help of Facebook page DSLR Market Philippines, netizens responded to him. Instead of buying the camera, they wanted to donate some cash so he wouldn’t need to sell it.
They asked for his money account details and sent money to him instead.
“Binibenta ko ang DSLR ko sa murang halaga, pero sabi wag ko nalang daw ibenta yung Camera mag dodonate donate daw sila para hindi ko maibenta yung camera ko, may nag offer din na kukunin daw nila sa price na 10k, 12k at 15k. Nakakatuwang isipin na may mga ganito pang tao na handang tumulong. Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat diko alam kung paano ako magpapasalamat.”
He was so grateful to all who send their help as he never expected that there were still people who are willing to help people like him.
