BUONG pusong niluto ng Syrian Vlogger na si Basel Manadil ang lahat ng food stocks sa kanyang restaurant para ipakain nang libre sa mga less fortunate Filipinos na apektado ng COVID-19 pandemic.
Aniya, munting paraan ito upang magpasalamat sa mga biyayang mayroon siya.
“Instead of keeping the food for myself or just leaving it inside the freezer until my business comes back to life again, I decided to cook everything and donate it to people,” sabi ni Manadil o mas kilala bilang The Hungry Syrian Wanderer sa Facebook.
Magiisang-taon na mula nang buksan niya ang YOLO Bubble Milktea & Retro Diner at malapit na rin magbukas ng panibagong branch Ngunit naantala dahil sa krisis.
“I realized that none of this seems to really matter and worth to stress/think about during this time: losing money, no income whatsoever. This is the time to help one another, sacrifice whatever you have left just to help someone even in a small way,” sabi ni Manadil sa viral post na may 80,000 reactions at 9,900 shares.
Hinihikayat din ng Syrian immigrant na may pusong Pinoy ang iba na tumulong sa mga lubos na nahihirapan.
“I’m challenging all the people who have something to give to do the same during this time where a lot of people needed help. The measure of life after all is not its duration, but its donation,” aniya.
“To all the frontliners, we support and pray for you. To all the netizen please let’s cooperate and stand as one to fight against this pandemic. Be positive guys.”
Matatandaang isa si Manadil sa mga good samaritans na namigay ng face masks nang sumabog ang Bulkang Taal nitong Enero.
