On Facebook, Greenpeace Philippines shared the photo of the old man receiving his new gifts. The page shared the sad reality that not everyone can afford the safety and protective gears that are required.

They wrote, “Nakaaantig ng puso! ‘Di naman gusto ng ilan sa ating mga kababayan ang magbisikleta nang walang helmet at iba pang proteksyon, ngunit sila ay napipilitan dahil sa kawalan ng accessible na transportasyon at dahil na rin sa kagustuhang maghanapbuhay.”

Despite the unfortunate reality, Greenpeace Philippines urged the public to continue supporting the programs and policies of the government.

“Suportahan ang mga programa tungo sa maayos na disenyo ng ating mga lungsod, para sa mas maunlad na pamumuhay ng mga nasa kalagayan ni Manong at ng bawat Filipino,” they wrote.

It was the volunteers of Bikers United Marshalls who found the old man and gave him his new helmet. The volunteers found the man along EDSA Roadbut they weren’t able to get the name and details of the man. The group said they are still looking for the man to give him more blessing and assistance but they couldn’t find him.

“Ngayong may mabuting loob na gustong tumulong sa kanila, di namin alam saan sila hahanapin. Konting tulong lang po para makatulong tayo sa kanila. Salamat. Pls share,” the Bikers United Marshalls group wrote.
