A photo posted on social media went viral because of a young man who sacrificed himself for the safety of his ka-barangay. He willingly volunteered to buy much needed medicines and food for the people of his barangay amidst the Luzon quarantine.
This young man was named Kuya Fil by YouScooper Janine Humarang of GMA News TV.
According to Janine, when Kuya Fil first arrived in the pharmacy, he couldn’t tell her immediately what he needs to purchase. Little did Janine know that Kuya Fil has a lot on his mind since he will be buying provisions to the people in his barangay which includes medicine, food and other basic commodities.
In the photos shared by Janine, Kuya Fil was so busy checking the list of the need-to-buy items from different people. He even called other owners of the stuff he bought to clarify over some things.
This caring and thoughtful gesture earned praise from netizens all over the Philippines. One Facebook user commented;
In times like this, I’m glad there are still people like you Kuya Fil.
God bless, may your kindness and initiative increase and be multiplied. – Ida Martinez
While others say that it was not a helpful gesture because maybe Kuya Fil was doing it for a living since the corona virus pandemic caused a lot of people to be jobless. Either for a living or just being helpful, a commenter still appreciated Kuya Fil.
Another person jokingly commented that Kuya Fil was maybe a Purok Purchaser, a person who was tasked to purchase the necessary things of the barangay he belonged to and it was his job to do so.
Regardless of the real reason behind Kuya Fil’s sacrifice to purchase the goods, we cannot deny that in these times of terror and chaos, a person will still be willing to sacrifice his life for the safety of others, and that is in the persona of Kuya Fill. Still, thank you to this young man.
