Food is one of things people usually take for granted. We have to admit that at one point, we have wasted food.
There are times where we don’t even finish a meal. Or left some to spoil.
Whenever I see street children begging for food, most of the time I give in to them by giving them some coins of food, if I have any.
It is always heartbreaking to see children starving. Just like in this scenario.
On Facebook, a netizen named Ienstien Hortal shared photos of a street kid eating carton as his meal.
According to him, he saw the boy at around 10:20-11:00 PM when he went to a convenience store. While eating inside, his heart broke when he saw him eating a carton.
He then approached the boy and talked to him. There, he found out that his name is JM and he is 16 years old.
Apparently, JM does not go to school anymore. He shared that he was supposed to finish elementary school, but his brother gave his stuff away.
It is assumed that JM ran away from home, as he revealed he now sleep on the streets.
In addition to this, Ienstien also found out that JM has 6 siblings, and that their parents already left them for another family. JM said his mother is in Montalban and his father is in Manila.
Because of this, Ienstien asked netizens to help JM and give him food, if they happen to ran into him.
Ienstien’s post immediately went viral, with a lot of netizens willing to help the JM.
As of this writing the post already has 55K reactions and 39K shares.
In a separate post, Ienstien gave an update about JM. He shared photos of JM eating real food with his new found friends.
Apparently, kind strangers took him in and gave him shelter.
