-Every now and then we hear stories of people being good samaritans and going out of their way to extend a helping hand to others.
-Such stories give us hope and restore our faith in humanity, especially in this seemingly daunting world we now live in.
-This is one story that proves we can still count on other people - complete strangers, in fact - in times of dire need, and how they just seem to come out of nowhere when we least expect it, like fallen angels sent from up above.
KAMI reviewed this May 25, 2017 Facebook post of a certain Aiza Montablan.
As her story goes, she went to St. Frances Cabrini Medical Center in Sto. Tomas, Batangas, to accompany her ailing grandmother for a check-up.
Hailing from Laguna, they had just enough cash on them, to cover their fare expenses and doctor’s consultation fee.
As Aiza recounted it, the doctor advised her grandmother to immediately undergo laboratory tests, something they could not clearly afford at the moment, due to lack of funds.
She shared how their money was only Php1,500.00, and Php500.00 of which was allotted for the consultation fee. The remaining amount was for the transportation fare. Laboratory fees were expected to be at Php1,836.00. Clearly, they came up short.
Upon learning about their predicament, Rhona Laurel Arcillas, a hospital staff, approached them and took out Php1,000 from her own pocket.
She did this on her own free will, without any doubts and second-thoughts.
In an interview with Pep, Rhona had this to say,
"Kasi alam ko din po yung pakiramdam na nagigipit dahil nararanasan ko din po yun. Kaya kung meron man po akong maitutulong para po makabawas sa nararamdaman at isipin nila.
"Especially sa kagaya po niya may sakit at matanda na, kaya mas ginusto ko po na tulungan siya... Pera lang naman po yun pwede ko pa pong kitain ulit."
Rhona is truly an inspiration to many who have read our her story. Indeed, she serves as an example to everyone.
May you be showered with abundance and an outpouring of blessings, Rhona. Keep doing what you do, and in time, you be rewarded tenfold.
