A family of a jeepney driver couldn’t believe how an anonymous donor saved them from their debts.
The family of Marife Sicam turned emotional when a donor – who didn’t want to be identified – paid their debts worth P30,000. Marife, who worked as a jeepney dispatcher while her husband was a driver, are among the many families affected by the quarantine brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Marife was in
tears as she extended her thanks to the good samaritan who didn’t want to be named. She said, “Salamat po kay Anonymous.”
Due to transport restrictions, Marife and her family has been eating “kamote” or sweet potato to get by. There are also times when they couldn’t help but go hungry due to the lack of food. Moreover, the family’s rental, electricity and water bills continued to rise to as much as P18,500.
Marife said they are grateful to the anonymous donor for the unexpected blessings. She said they are hoping to have their luck turned around by opening a store soon. As they prepare for the transport restrictions to ease, Marife’s husband already installed plastic barriers inside their jeep to practice social distancing.
In a time when it’s easy to show off their acts of kindness, many netizens are impressed with the anonymous donor’s good deed.
A netizen said, “Ito ang tunay na kabutihan, hindi kailangan ng picture para sumikat. God bless you and your family abundantly. Thank you.”
Another netizen said, “Hanga ako sa mga tao na ganyan na nagbibigay kahit si God lang ang nakakaalam sa ginagawa niyang kabutihan.”
