Bayanihan spirit still alive in Legazpi City

The bayanihan spirit of Filipinos is present during times of great need, especially when you’re trying to move your house from one place to another literally.

According to a report by ABS-CBN News, there were at least 30 men carrying a small hut at that time.

They were transferring the hut owned by Rodolfo Sevilla, about 100 meters from its original site. It took these men an hour to successfully transfer the hut even if the terrain was uphill.

This was a sight to behold especially with the Mayon Volcano in the background taken on early Sunday morning in Barangay Homapon, Legazpi City, Albay.

This story is just among the many stories of how bayanihan in this small barangay is still alive and well until today.

A 67-year-old Jaime Bremon told ABS-CBN News that he couldn’t even count the number of houses they have moved when he was still young.

Bremon added that it has somehow become a tradition for their community to help out one another that it was even passed on to the younger generation.

Ronald Velsaco, 24, said he was honored for doing this the second time around.

After successfully moving the hut, the owner treated them with pancit and dinuguan as a way of thanking them.
