- John and Monica Tubo, a Filipino couple living and working in Dubai, are at a loss for words when they learned that Hassan Fardan Al Fardan, a Dubai businessman, footed all of their hospital bills
- Monica delivered premature-born twins in the hospital several weeks ago
- After several weeks of hospital care, their bill rose to a staggering 57,000 Dirhams, or roughly around 750K in Philippine money, the couple knew right away they won’t be able to afford it
- With a maxed out health insurance, even their combined salaries would not suffice, so they issued a call for help
Filipino couple John and Monica Tubo, who are living and working in Dubai, were overjoyed upon learning a Dubai businessman footed their enormous hospital bill.
According to a report by The National Newspaper, Monica delivered premature-born twins in the NMC Royal Hospital.
When the twins were healthy enough and they were about to be discharged, the hospital presented them with a AED57,000 bill, or around Php750,000.
Monica works as a nanny in the Middle Eastern nation, and John is a salon cleaner. They have their annual health insurance allowance but it was already maxed out and could not cover the entire amount required.
As a result, the hospital asked the Filipino couple to deposit their passports as security while they look for a funding source.
Luckily, Dubai businessman Hassan Fardan Al Fardan, who happens to be the CEO of Al Fardan Exchange, heard of the couple’s woes and immediately responded to their call for help.
He shouldered the entire amount of AED57,000 (Php750,000) without asking for anything in return.
Monica was very grateful upon learning the news, saying that Al Fardan’s donation couldn’t have come at a better time.
The Dubai businessman, for his part, said, “the most enlightening experience is that of giving back to the communities we serve and kindness is a language that the Al Fardan family understands.”
As a result, Monica will be able to retrieve her passport from the hospital. This story proves that goodness still exists and that it always wins.
Like what Sarah Geronimo in her movie “A Very Special Love” always say, “maniwala na lang kasi kayo sa goodness!”

Monica Pentio Tubo, a 25-year-old Filipina who gave birth to twins two months ago has been left with huge debts after they were born prematurely and needed extra medical attention. She and her husband needed to pay off a Dh57,000 bill after giving birth to her two daughters in February. Although the children have remained healthy since, their premature birth meant they had to remain in care for, which quickly used up her annual health insurance allowance.
When babies get sick, parents go through a lot of difficulties. An example of this is the one-year-old Filipino girl who has been confined in the hospital because of the novel coronavirus disease. She is considered the youngest Filipino to have contracted the fatal virus.
As for OFWs, they have to go through hardships just to sustain their families back home. A year ago, a video of an overseas worker carrying her charge while cleaning the house and cooking went viral. Many netizens were amazed at the OFWs dedication and hard work.
