Jarred Gaviola, a Grade-9 student of the Muntinlupa Science High School, has just shown people what compassion is all about.
At a young age, he found the heart to use his scholarship allowance to purchase relief goods and medicines for the poor communities deeply affected by the pandemic.
Jarred recounted that the desire to help started from deep within. Nobody told him to help or to reach out to the needy.
"Nag-start po siya sa sarili ko po dahi nakita ko pong marami ang nangangailangan, marami ang nasa lansangan na nag-aantay ng mga tulong. Marami pong pamilya na nagugutom na dahi lsa krisis na nangyayari sa ating bansa."
According to Jared, he just had this compassion towards others.
Jared is also the president of Key Club of Muntinlupa Science High School Servant Leaders. Through the club's efforts, they were able to donate a lot of relief goods and medicines to residents and frontliners.
He also wished that other people may be inspired to help, whether big or small because it will surely make a lot of people happy. Whatever help that you can give will surely go a long way.
In a previous report by KAMI, the government faced problems when they imposed the initial community quarantine, which was elevated into enhanced community quarantine. It also suspended transportation causing massive problems with commuters and many people lost their means of income.
The pandemic has caused the poor to suffer much from the pandemic. Celebrities, private entities, have gone out of their way to help and alleviate the situation of the poor through their donations.
