Piolo helps Jollibee ‘selfless tatay’ with scholarship for his children

It has been a year since Ryan Arebuabo’s unconditional love for his kids prompted people to shower not only the selfless father but also his family with help.

It can be remembered that last year, a photo of Tatay Ryan treating his children to a meal in Jollibee, while he silently watched them, went viral online, melting the hearts of many.

He only wanted to treat his children to a delightful meal that day. Little did he know that a certain Jhunnel Sarajan would also dine in the same fast food at the same time, and take a photo that will eventually change his life.

After his photo went viral online, the public learned of his story: he suffered from stroke four years ago and his wife left him.

He supports himself and his two daughters through the allowance he gets from the government’s 4Ps initiative and a profit of P100-P200 per day from his small sari-sari store.

After his story took over the cyber world, netizens started sending him donations. Sarajan has also taken the initiative to raise funds for Tatay Ryan’s health and his kids’ education, as well as livelihood assistance through the Facebook page “Tatay Ryan.”

The monetary aid he got helped him repair his humble home in Tondo, Manila. He was also able to buy two tricycles which he rents out.

He also sold some of the excess groceries he received from donations in his sari-sari store.

Tatay Ryan also received free therapy at a local wellness clinic in Binondo which now helps him recover from his illness.

The loving father’s story was also featured on the drama anthology “Maalaala Mo Kaya” where he was portrayed by Piolo Pascual.

After the episode aired, Pascual promised to help Tatay Ryan by shouldering the school fees of his two daughters. Aside from his kid’s scholarship at a private school, Pascual also gave Tatay Ryan a cellphone.

A local bookstore also promised to take care of the kid’s school supplies.
