“Kumakatok po kami sa mga may mabubuting loob para kay Tatay Romie at kay Nanay Corazon, si Tatay Romie po ay naglalako ng apron sa tapat ng Zabarte Mall.
May mga taong nagpaabot na ng kanilang tulong at ito ay ipinaabot na kina Nanay at Tatay ang mga ito. Sila ay hinandugan na ng groceries at cash. Si Tatay Romie ay 80 years old at 71 naman si Nanay Corazon.
Sa darating na Oktubre 18 ay 81 years old na si Tatay at ang tanging hiling lang niya ay pustiso. Nais namin na matulungan si tatay sa hiling niyang ito. May kalakihan ang halaga na kakailanganin kaya’t kami ay humihingi ng tulong sa kahit magkanong halaga upang maisakatuparan ang hiling na ito ni Tatay.
Sa mga nais magpaabot ng tulong maaari ninyo kaming kontakin dito sa aming facebook account @Nikki Marielle Efren Eviota at @AJ Mirandilla. Lahat ng malilikom na donasyon ay mapupunta kila tatay Romie at Nanay Corazon. Maraming Salamat po, Godbless!!”
