Murphy Red shared on Facebook how he helped an unknown woman who sent her a friend request.
The woman with the Facebook name Lazarte Simeon Maria Grace sent a friend request, and since she seemed to be harmless, Murphy Red accepted it.
Then one morning, Maria Grace messaged Murphy asking for help.
“Nag-message s’ya sa akin na baka pwede makahingi ng konting bigas kasi kagabi pa hindi kumakain ang mga anak niya, sagad na sagad na ang bigas nila at wala na silang malapitan,” Murphy said in the post.
“Wala umanong trabaho ang mister niya dahil sa lockdown at masasakitin pa kaya hindi rin makakilos. Tatlong beses lang daw silang nakatanggap ng relief mula sa gobyerno at wala nang kasunod,” he added.
He said that he is not rich, but the good-hearted citizen did not hesitate to help and immediately asked Maria Grace for her address.
They are both from Antipolo, however, their area is far from each other, so he asked his niece Raya to send the help to Maria Grace since he is asthmatic and doesn’t want to risk his health.
**#TayongLahatAyMARIAGRACE**Hindi kami personal na magkakilala ni Maria Grace. Nagpadala lang siya ng friend request…
“Dahil malayo ang agwat ng tirahan ko dito COGEO mula sa barangay nila at hindi ako nangangahas na lumabas dahil ako ay asthmatic at bulnerableng mahawa ng coronavirus, kinontak ko ang pamangkin kong si Raya na taga-Dalig 2 at pinakiusapan na paabutan ng bigas at ilang delata at iba pang makakain si Maria Grace,” the netizen said.
Eventually, Raya was able to give the goods to Maria Grace before going to work.
The netizen said that he did not publish his post to boast, but to point out that people still need help recovering from the effects of the crisis.
Maria Grace expressed her gratitude because she tried to reach out to other people but some of them ignored her messages and even blocked her.
