LOOK: PWD gathers donations to help Ulysses victims in Marikina

In the face of crisis, this person with a disability (PWD) won’t let anything stop him from helping out.

A resident of Barangay Mambugan in Antipolo City, 50-year-old Romeo Menil asked for donations from the side of the road to help out Marikina City residents affected by Typhoon Ulysses.

The typhoon, which came on the heels of Super Typhoon Rolly, had triggered massive flooding in Marikina City, triggering flashbacks among residents of their experience with Tropical Storm Ondoy. Marikina was among the hardest hit cities during Ondoy, recording 70 casualties, most of whom drowned, and more than P27 million (US$605,000) worth of damage.

Gathering P12,390 from his stint, Menil sought help from a barangay councilor to accompany him in giving the donations to the Marikina City government.

According to the Marikina Public Information Office on Monday, November 16, Marikina City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro personally received the donation from Menil to show his thanks.

Bagama’t may kapansanan, hindi naging hadlang kay Menil ang pagtulong (Menil did not let his disability stop him from helping),” the Marikina City Public Information Office said.

Since Typhoon Ulysses struck, many groups were quick to lead relief drives in a bid to help affected communities recover.
