At first glance, you will feel sorry for the homeless. Aside from the fact that no one is taking care of them, their food depends on the good people who pass by and give them help. In the current situation, we face today, they are even more difficult to keep up with life. If you could see someone like them on the road would you dare to help and take care of them?
Because that is what the sacristans in San Roque Parish in Mawab, Davao De Oro did to a homeless Totong. They took Totong to their convent, bathed, cut his hair, and fed him. According to Teotristian Gomez sausage one of the altar boys,
“Tinulungan namin siya dahil naawa kami at para na rin makita namin siyang malinis.”
In the photos posted by the province of Davao de Oro on Facebook, Totong’s long hair, as well as his beard, can be immediately noticed. She also has no top clothes and her whole body is very dirty. Maybe it’s because he doesn’t take a bath and no one takes care of him. He said he only relies on those who are kind enough to give him food when he is seen on the road.
The seven altar boys come together to cut his hair, bathe and clothe him. We can see the pleasure on Totong’s face. Especially when he gets dressed and given food. You can no longer recognize him from the way he used to look. It looks like another person after fixing him up.
According to a netizen who commented Evelyn Golo Buntrosto, Totong and his brother were also former altar boys. That’s why Totong is just so grateful to them.
Christabel Orfane’s story, that’s why they say they see Totong who still goes to church every Sunday because he is a former altar boy. The kind and good altar boys received a lot of praise from netizens and the Province of Davao de Oro.
“Good job boys. Pinakita ninyo ang katangian ng totoong kristyano matulungin, mahabagin at may malasakit sa kapwa lalo na sa mga mahihirap, nangangailangan at yong mga kinalimutan na ng lipunan.”
Totong and other altar boys are currently in the care of San Roque Parish.
