Poverty in the Philippines does not only affect locals but even the foreigners who live in the country. Today, even the foreigners are forced to practically beg for food and money.
Many foreigners living in the Philippines are attracted to the low cost of English-language education and housing, both significantly cheaper than those offered in their native countries. With this at hand, many of them live in the Philippines and their population is getting bigger by the day. But apparently, not all of them are living well.
Some foreigners often marry into the Filipino community, building relationships with many Filipinos. Unfortunately for this man, he is left alone in the streets, with no friends, no money—and he is gravely sick!
The unidentified man can be seen begging for food and money in the streets of Dipolog City, Zamboanga Del Norte in the Philippines—with his wounds exposed to all the dirt and bacteria.
His photo immediately went viral—reaching out to many netizens who wish to help the still unidentified man. Facebook user Castro Eugeene was not able to ask the man’s name, making it hard for other netizens to reach out and help.
Hopefully somebody will help him get to his embassy and go home to his homeland soon. His family must be waiting for him!
