DUBAI: In his three decades in Dubai, Reynaldo Buenaflor Angulo, more fondly referred to in the community as “Kuya Rey,” would by now have voluminous lists of the people that he had extended a helping hand to.

Kuya Rey, your “go to” guy when in tight corners, is a recognized volunteer social worker at Rashid Hospital.

He does counselling; also volunteers as medical escort for wheel-chaired stroke patients, including psychiatric cases; assists female detainees in connecting with the Philippine Consulate for their needs and queries; and handles repatriation of “stretcher-case patients.”

Angulo says his phone rings till midnight.

In the years of work on this field, Angulo says he has facilitated the repatriation of over 300 human remains, including cremation.

“I do what I do because I want to get out of my self-centered thinking to be useful and to be able to make a difference in somebody else’s life by giving a piece of my heart to those who need comfort and reassurance during turbulent moments,” said Angulo, whose day job is being an office employee.

He said he “always look for opportunities to lend a helping hand because no one has to face the world alone.

“What I do reminds me constantly the value of life is on how much I share with and care for those in need, the sick, the dying, the helpless and the hopeless.”
