Good Samaritan Gives Groceries to Poor Man Amid Panic Buying

GOOD SAMARITAN – A Good Samaritan and other shoppers in Landmark give grocery items to a poor man amid panic buying.

This week, panic buying of medical supplies including face masks, alcohol, hand sanitizers, and other medical items have already started due to the increasing cases of the coronavirus disease in the Philippines.

Many Filipino people are buying those medical supplies to prevent the spread of the disease in the country. However, there are some hoarders who buy on-bulk and resell the items for a higher price.

Recently, a Facebook user named Lane Blackwater has shared the photos of a Good Samaritan Woman who paid for the grocery items of a poor man inside Landmark. The post garnered various reactions online.

The Good Samaritan told the poor man to get whatever grocery items he needs and she will pay for it. The guy picked up a few canned goods and bottles of alcohol but the kind lady to get some more.

The other shoppers took pity for the old man and donated some items to him despite panic buying.

Good samaritan in Landmark. ❤️

While everyoneelse was hoarding like hell (yung tipong punong-puno ang mga big carts) here in Landmark, habang naghihintay kami ng asawa ko na mag-move ang line ay I couldn’t help but overhear this very nice young lady sa likuran namin saying to Manong na hindi nya kilala (na ang laman lang ng basket ay few canned goods and few bottles of alcohol na maliliit lang) na, “kuha pa po kayo ng tinapay, kape, asukal… ako po ang magbabayad”. Manong was reluctant pa pero sa matagalang pagpilit sa kanya, napapayag din siya. Umalis siya saglit at kumuha ng dalawang piraso ng bread. So sabi ni girl na, “yan lang po kinuha nyo? Kuha pa po kayo. Dagdagan nyo pa po, ako po ang magbabayad.” Si Manong, nagsmile lang pero pinilit pa rin siya ni girl. So Manong left again to get few more items habang si girl ay binulungan ang kasama nya to get more items like colgate and the likes… di ko na masyadong sinilip ang mga nilalagay nila kasi nahiya na rin naman ako. 😅

So habang wala pa si Manong, napupuno na ang basket nya kalalagay nila girl and kasama nya ng mga necessity items during times like this na may pandemic…

Pagdating ni Manong, nagulat na lang siya sa dami ng laman ng basket nya. Makikitang happy and overwhelmed na rin si Manong.

In the end, pati yung ibang nasa counter na customer ay nagbigay na rin ng konti-konting items like Spam and etc. (na they paid) kay Manong at may nag-offer pa na sila na magbabayad ng mga items ni Manong.

Nakakatuwa lang kasi may mga tao pa rin talaga na kagaya ni girl na makikita mo ang sincerity sa pagtulong. Pati tuloy mga tao nahawa na sa kanya.

Sana all kagaya ni girl.

P.S.
Kudos pala kay Landmark for limiting purchase of alcohol to 6 per customer.
