Mandaue police cut their pay for young boy

When they found out 9-year-old Daniel Cabrera wanted to be a cop, policemen from the Mandaue City Police Office (MCPO) made a promise. This payday, June 30, policemen of the MCPO will pass the hat for the young boy whose photo studying at a street corner by the light of a fastfood joint went viral last week. Cabrera, a 3rd-grader, earlier explained that there was no electricity where he lived. About 50 uniformed personnel have volunteered to contribute portions of their salary to aid the family. Officers have also been assigned to visit the boy every month to ensure his safety and check on his studies.
