A scholar of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) has made a heartwarming social media post that immediately caught the attention of many netizens.
KAMI learned that the viral post was made in the midst of the criticism that the beneficiaries of the said government program are receiving.
Marvin Arnoza, an engineering graduate of the Bicol University, initially recognized the fact that the money that his family received came from the taxes of people.
He revealed that his father died when he was still in first year college and he once doubted himself if he could still be able to continue going to school to pursue education.
The said Bicolano also stated that he used to work as a construction worker during summer vacation because there were no allowances given during that time.
“Hindi po naging madali ang buhay estudyante ko bilang isang iskolar, nagdalawang isip kung tutuloy pa ba o hindi na… Madalas po nakiki-ani kami ng palay, nagkokopra, para atleast pagbalik ko ng Unibersidad may dagdag pagkain at pang-gastos bukod sa ayuda ng gobyerno,” he wrote.
“Di ko na nabilang kung ilang beses akong lumuha dahil sa hirap… Pero nanguna po sa mga naging inspirasyon ko yung pamilya ko na sana dadating yung araw na hindi na namin kailangang maging uhaw sa ayuda ng gobyerno, na sana dadating yung araw na hindi na kami makakarinig ng sumbat mula sa kapwa namin dahil masakit po…” he added.
At the latter part of his viral post, Marvin thanked all the people who contributed and became his way to earn a bachelor’s degree.
He also clarified that he just wants to share to the public the good result of 4Ps and that has no hard feelings despite receiving criticism from other people.
“Maraming maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat dahil kayo po yung naging daan kung bakit ang isang katulad ko po na simpleng bata mula sa pamilya ng mga magsasaka, ay nagkaroon ng pagkakataong matupad ang pangarap…” he stressed.
“Wala po akong sama ng loob, dahil lahat naman po tayo may kanya-kanyang opinyon, ang sa akin lang po gusto kong iparating na kahit paano may magandang naidudulot po ang buwis ninyo,” he concluded.

A Filipino found his own way to help frontliners amid pandemic. “They had to walk an hour, an hour and a half to get to work. I mean, coming from an 8-hour shift sa hospital, tapos palalakarin mo pa yung nurse o kahit security guard. Parang hindi makatarungan, diba?” – on HumanMeter!
