Marcelito Pomoy said he helped build four homes for those in need.
While many Filipinos struggle to face the financial impact of COVID-19 crisis in the country, it didn’t stop Marcelito from extending assistance. Aside from relief assistance, the singer even decided to help build homes to those who do not have shelter.
During Marcelito’s visit on ABS-CBN’s Magandang Buhay, he shared his inspiration on why he chose to help build homes for others. He said his reason was simple and that is because he sincerely just wants to help.
Marcelito said, “Kailangan kong tumulong sa tao.”
The singer went to share that his experiences growing up motivated him to help. Marcelito said he also didn’t have a house when he was young and he knew the struggles of living in the streets. Now that he has achieved much in life, he wanted to give back to others.
“Kasi na-realize ko, noong bata ako wala rin akong saktong tirahan, kumbaga isa rin akong palaboy, kung saan-saan ako nakatira. Kaya kapag [naalala] ko ang nakaraan, hindi ko maipaliwanag, kailangan kong tumulong sa tao. Para maiparamdam ko man lang kung ano ang narating ko ngayon ay maibalik ko sa kanila,” he Marcelito.
He said he is now about to finish his fourth home and will soon be turned over to a lucky owner. Around May, Marcelito began his mission by building a home for Nanay Aurora Verano from the Quezon province. The elderly woman had resided in a dilapidated house for ten years and was emotional when the singer handed over to her her new house.
