A pedicab driver in Albay, who had earlier received financial assistance from the government, earned a lot of praise after he returned the another P5,000 cash given to him.
The honest pedicab driver was identified as Cesar Brillantes, 42 years old, whose livelihood has been seriously affected by the enhanced community quarantine.
According to a report by ABS-CBN News, Cesar has hearing and speech impairment. His wife is also unemployed.
Cesar said he received cash aid under the social amelioration program (SAP) twice because he was listed as a beneficiary in two barangays, Barangay San Carlos and Barangay Basud.
According to the Philippine Information Agency, SAP is a cash emergency subsidy program for millions of Filipino families whose lives are greatly affected by the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). It is mandated by the Bayanihan To Heal As One Act, signed by the President last March 25, 2020.
His honesty also gained a lot of praises from the netizens:
“Salute kuya kasi nakakaintindi siya at alam niya ang hirap ng buhay sa panahon ng covid 19.”
“Yan ang totoong tao hindi marunong mandaya.”
“Ayos yan brod. Sana yung iba din gayahin ka.”
“Kahit gaano kahirap ang sitwasyon natin ngayon meron pa ring taong ganito ang loob at ayaw manlamang sa kapwa. A big salute to you.”
“Doble pa rin kuya ang marereceive mong biyaya dahil sa iyong katapatan.”
In a previous report by KAMI, a barangay chairman in Laguna bravely posted in public places the names of his constituents who are on the list of SAP financial assistance beneficiaries.
At present, the Philippines is under a state of calamity while the entire Luzon is under an enhanced community quarantine.
