There are some people whom others can rely on in times of unfortunate circumstances.

Adversity makes us tough, hence, it builds character to test how far we can go.

These concerned citizens who went viral online embodied the ‘bayanihan’ spirit during the rupture of Mt. Taal.

Roger Villa

On January 12, Roger’s wife Marjorie posted the series of photos taken while he was cleaning the windshield of the passing cars by their home.

Little did he know that her beloved wife was taking some photos for her to ‘flex’ among netizens.

According to Marjorie, Roger is known in their municipality for his charitable acts.

Hungry Syrian Wanderer

Basel, the man behind the ‘Hungry Syrian Wanderer’ digital page, has extended his help by providing N95 masks for people.

Now based in the Philippines, Basel went all around the city to look for the safety gear to bring it all to evacuation centers in Batangas and Tagaytay.

He also mentioned bringing other relief goods like water, blankets, and diapers.

The Syrian vlogger began his online post with, “Bulkan ka lang, Pilipino kami.”

 

Angelo Bernardo Cerveza

A fellow named Angelo Bernardo Cerveza became a ‘one click away’ citizen after informing his fellow netizens about the rescue operation he and his friends will be doing.

They were there to help the stranded victims with the three available vans.

Cerveza has also been coordinating with other volunteers for the provision of food and drinks in the provinces of Laguna and Cavite.

Evan Jesusco

Another ‘flexing’ on Facebook was done by the wife of a Good Samaritan who gave free surgical masks to strangers in Batangas.

Evan Jesusco was in awe after finding out that his photos turned into an online viral on Monday.

At the same time, he was asking for prayers for the distressed victims of the rupture.

“Mahal na mahal ko kayo Batangueños! Hindi man ako purong Batangueño pero may pusong Batangueño ako. Ito agad naisip kong paraan para makatulong,” he said in a separate post.

Mantuano Family

Kahit sa anong paraan makakatulong basta gugustuhin mo lang,” Mary Ann, the daughter of a Good Samaritan proudly said on a statement.

This mother from Lipa City reached out to the victims by producing dozens of cloth masks.

According to Mary Ann Mantuano’s Facebook post, her mother did not if know she could extend her help but decided to make the masks later on.

Castillo Family

 

A family in the town of Bauan, Batangas has opened its doors to hungry inhabitants near the catastrophic incident caused by Mt. Taal.

M. Castillo Eatery has fed plenty of people within the area for free.

They are the living proof that compassionate hearts freely help others without giving any excuses.
