Added to that, he is also supporting four more children plus their mother.
The father was very resilient and he just loved his family so much that he took on other income-generating means just to see his family through.

While there are stories that break the hearts, there are also those that show kindness. The video of an Angkas rider crying profusely after falling victim to a fake booking and subsequently helped by fellow riders has gone viral. A Grab Food delivery rider stopped to console the Angkas rider and beckoned to his other colleagues to help the crying man. The victim lamented that he is trying to work well so he could earn a living. To cheer up the weeping Angkas rider, the two Grab Food delivery riders pooled in their money to buy the ordered food.
A netizen who was still on the road beyond curfew hours was brought home by a barangay patrol. Despite being seen outside after the curfew has passed, the Barangay Captain chose not to arrest her. Instead, the barangay official ordered their patrol to bring the netizen home as there were no other transportation available at the time. The netizen, upon arriving home, immediately took to social media to narrate her experience.
