Mom proud of son who used scholarship allowance to help neighbors in need

-

A first-year college student from Taguig City University used a portion of his scholarship allowance to help neighbors who have not received relief goods amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mother Yolanda Oribiana Verceles proudly shared the heartwarming act of her son in a Facebook post last April 26.  

Yolanda said she was surprised and happy to learn about her son’s decision to buy rice and distribute it among neighbors in need of help.

“Napag-isip ako at natuwa dahil sa natanggap nyang (scholarship) kay mayor na 5k eh 1,500 lang ang hawak nya at sa akin napunta ang iba. Naisip pala nya ang ibang tao na naghihirap sa panahon ng COVID-19,” she shared.

His son then bought and repacked 25 kilograms of rice into 1 kilogram packages for distribution. 

“Nakita ko ang saya sa mukha ng anak ko sa isip-isip ko ‘hindi siguro sya kuntento kung di niya mai-share sa ibang tao ang blessing na kanyang natanggap’ kaya’t agad ko syang tinulungan para maipamigay sa kapitbahay na walang-wala,” said Yolanda.

“Bilang isang ina ang ganda ng pakiramdam dahil may anak akong mabait at marunong sa kapwa, siguro kung may trabaho sya at may malaking suweldo hindi lang ito ang maibibigay niya,” she added.

Yolanda couldn’t forget the look of joy on her son’s face after their rice distribution.

“Nang matapos kaming mamigay nakita ko sa mukha niya ang saya dahil sa mga naririnig nya ‘thank you at salamat’ ay nakakaluwag na sa puso.”

Yolanda’s post has since gone viral with over 50,000 reactions and 10,000 shares on Facebook as of writing.
