An 80-year-old woman, Matilde Caringel, earned the sympathy of the online community after a netizen named Eunice Patricia Ama, posted her photo and explained that in her old age, she is still working.
The grandma is supporting her husband who seemed to be bedridden and her daughter, who seemed to have some sort of illness.
The post has gone viral and many netizens sent help and donated goods. Eunice also showed how they gave donations to the grandma and her family.
Filipino resilience is evident in times of crisis. Many have shown that they can make it through a pandemic. Filipinos abroad have also shown this kind of resiliency.
One example of Filipino resilience is how people looked for ways and means to live after they lost their jobs because of unexpected circumstances. For instance, a stewardess turned to online selling when she lost her job.
Artists, like Gladys Guevarra, also put her skills in making Filipino delicacies to good use. Gloc-9 also exhibited this attitude.
