- Two elderly brothers have not seen each other for 40 years
- A concerned citizen posted the photo of the elder brother, Lolo Rogelio, whose foot seemed eaten by gangrene and who has no one to take care of him
- This reached his younger brother in Manila and through the help of Raffy Tulfo, the brothers were reunited, promising a better life for Lolo Rogelio
When siblings grow up, they often get separated as each already has his own family to take care of.
However, the case of Lolo Ruben and Lolo Rogelio is quite unique as they have not seen each other for 40 years.
Unbeknownst to Lolo Ruben, KAMI learned that Lolo Rogelio has already been trying to look for poison to end his life amidst all his sufferings.
He lives in a shanty that is almost about to collapse. He's alone and with a foot that has been rendered unusable for years.
His situation caught the attention of netizens after a concerned person posted it on Facebook.
When his niece saw it, and was later confirmed by Lolo Ruben that indeed, Lolo Rogelio was his brother, they sought the help of Raffy Tulfo in Action to get to Antique and reach Lolo Rogelio.
When they reached him, the reunion of Lolo Ruben and Lolo Rogelio was a very emotional moment for everyone.
Even the staff of Raffy Tulfo couldn't hold back the tears.
They then took Lolo Rogelio the hospital, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Watch the touching moment that the brothers were reunited.
