Tuesday of October 6, 2020 in Binangonan town of Rizal, a man carrying a child behind him caught the attention of the people while he was selling a “Taho”. According to Jam Perry Branch, he spoke to the boy’s father Richard Paclibare, he is 30 years old of age, they live in Bagong Buwan Aran Darangan Extension, Binangonan Rizal. He found out that Richard was a solo parent and had no contact with his wife. According to him, he has siblings to take care of his son, but no one can take care of his son when his siblings have important things to do. So he was the only one who take care his son when he was selling “Taho”.
Because of the hardships of life, Richard have to sacrifice to provide his child’s daily needs. So, even though he has to bring his son to his everyday livelihood he does, so that he will not stop in working to earn money.
So the day Richard sold the “Taho” when he was carrying his son, he passed by the house of Aljun Tubahon and Jam Perry. Even if they want to help it, they cannot provide financial assistance because they only have enough money. So to help them, they took a photo of the father and son and posted it on social media, hoping that many people would respond to the father’s help.
Only a few days later it went viral and a lot of help poured in for the father and son, as well as their local government of Binangonan provided their help. Richard is very grateful to the people who wholeheartedly helped them and especially to the people who helped them reach out. According to Jam Perry, he wants to continue his mission to help his fellow citizens who need help.
