It seems normal for us to see children begging on the streets because of extreme poverty. This is one of the problems facing our country. But, what many of us don’t know is what exactly are the reasons why there are children begging.
Perhaps there is a reason why children instead of being inside the home at night still stay on the street to beg for money from people.
A sad post was shared by concerned netizen Pearl Jhene David, where she shared a photo of the two siblings she passed in San Matias near the SM/Robinsons Starmills over-pass. The siblings he found begging while wearing plastic.
According to Pearl’s statement, the siblings allegedly begged to buy medicine for Santino’s illness because he has a kidney stone disease.
According to Aldin’s older brother, they were begging with his brother while waiting for their mother who was trading junks. “Wala po kasi si mama, nangangalakal pa po, mamaya pa po iyon uuwi.” Aldrin said in an interview.
Pearl’s heart almost broke when she saw the two children and they were still having a fever. Shivering in the extreme cold while sleeping soundly on the cold stairs.
Meanwhile, Pearl provided help for the siblings and also gave her number so that if she could find a way to help the siblings, she could easily find it.
