Nowadays, it is a very rare scenario to see people giving a certain amount of cash to a complete stranger without thinking twice or any hesitation.
That’s why this kind-hearted man in Lipa, Batangas is currently making headlines after helping a poor female passenger who’s about to give birth inside a public utility jeepney.
On Facebook, a netizen named Khen Pili shared the story of this “Good Samaritan,” who showed kindness to a random people he just met during a jeepney ride.
According to Khen, he was riding a jeepney in Lipa, Batangas, where a pregnant woman together with her husband and daughter were also onboard. While inside the public vehicle, the couple’s daughter has been relentlessly crying for an unknown reason.
Then suddenly, a male passenger tried to comfort the young girl by giving her PHP 500 so that she can buy some food she wants.
He also learned that the mother of the child was about to give birth and they’re on the way to a hospital in Lipa. After hearing their situation, the kind-hearted man gave them another PHP 1000 to the poor woman.
The unnamed man also provided his number and told the woman to call him if they need help.
“…dinagdagan pa ni kuya ng 1k yung una n’yang ibinigay na 500 nang nalaman na manganganak na pala yung babae, ibinigay din n’ya ang number n’ya sa mag-asawa at tawagan daw siya kung sakaling kailangan ng tulong at tutulong daw siya..”
Many netizens who were impressed by this man’s generosity and golden heart. Here are some of their comments:
“Saludo ako sa’yo boss. Ang mga katulad mo ay siyang pinagpapala ng Diyos.”
“Pagpalain ka ng Diyos sa iyong pagkakawang-gawa.”
“A good Samaritan, a present day hero… salute sa’yo, Kuya!”
One netizen can’t help but share a similar experience where a stranger also gave him PHP 1000 on his birthday.
“Parang nangyari sa akin habang bumibili ako ng BBQ para pulutan namin kasi birth day ko, tinanong ako kung bakit marami binili ko, sagot ko, ‘Birthday ko kasi, mag–iinuman kami sa labas ng opisina’, at inabutan niya ako ng 1, 000 pesos sabay sabing ‘Happy birthday’. Nakakahiya man tanggapin kasi hindi ko naman kilala, pero sa huli tinanggap ko pa rin.”
