Do you know how heartbreaking it is to see old people on the streets? Because of poverty, we often see old people still selling anything on the streets just to earn a living.
But this scenario is different, although this old woman is seen on the streets, she was not selling anything. The reason of her being there is even more heartbreaking.
On Facebook, a netizen named Val Santos Matubang posted a video of his encounter with a grandma she met on a highway.
While Val was talking to the grandmother, netizens could not help but feel sorry for her. Some could not even help but cry.
According to grandma, she is on her way to her sibling’s house to get the 10 peso coin she dropped. Grandma looks very old, she walks slow and her clothes are ragged.
When Val asked about her age, she said she could not remember her birthday anymore.
In addition to this, grandma also said that she has 4 children, but all of which have their own families now.
Furthermore, upon hearing her story, Val offered to help grandma by giving her all the cash in his pocket.
In the video, you can see him handing over a bunch of 20, 100 and 500 peso bills.
Moreover, even though grandma is having a hard time speaking, you can tell she is really grateful for Val’s help.
Val then advised grandma not to look for her 10 pesos anymore and just go home, since its really dangerous to walk in the highway.
