Darwin Ramos suffered a diseased called the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Despite his illness, he persevered and encouraged street children to become followers of Jesus Christ.

Unfortunately, he died in September 2012 because of his illness. Now, the Bishops in the Philippines said they are collecting testimonies and stories about the Christian life of Darwin.
