Heartbreaking Photos of Poor Old Man Living Along The Streets Amid ECQ Goes Viral Online

A poor old man is now living along the street amid the enhanced community quarantine after his wife goes to Bicol without him before lockdown.

A Facebook user named Mae Ann Hao-Reginaldo has shared the heartbreaking story of a poor old man identified as Antonio Sumang who is living alone in the streets. The post goes viral and garnered various reactions from the online community.

Reginaldo narrated that Lolo Antonio stopped farming after the ashes from Mt. Pinatubo covered their house, rice fields, and properties in Central Luzon. Now, the old man is suffering from the effects of the coronavirus outbreak in the country.

Poor Old Man

The 80-year-old man is offering umbrella repair services in Cubao when he heard the news that the National Capital Region would implement lockdown. Lolo Antonio is supposed to go back to Batasan Hills but his mother-in-law bring his wife to Bicol without informing him.

Mang Antonio is now staying at a pawnshop in P. Tuazon while offering umbrella repair services. He currently relies on the good given by kind-hearted people passing in the area.

Here is the full post:

Noon, Pinatubo. Tinabunan ng lahar ang mga bahay, palayan, at kabuhayan sa Gitnang Luzon. Hindi na nakapagsakang muli si Antonio Sumang, tubong Macabebe.

Ngayon, lockdown, 80 na si Antonio. Nasa Cubao siya, naghahanap ng magpapagawa ng payong nang marinig ang tungkol sa lockdown. Uuwi sana siya sa Batasan Hills para makasama ang asawa. Malaki na ang nag-iisang anak niya, hindi na nila kasama sa bahay. Sa daan pauwi, nakasalubong niya ang mga kapitbahay niya, isinama raw ng biyenan niya si misis pauwi sa Bicol bago magsara ang NCR. Walang cellphone ang mag-asawa, hindi nila makakausap man lang ang isa’t isa habang may lockdown.

Sa labas ng isang pawnshop sa P. Tuazon naglalagi si Mang Antonio kapag hindi siya umuuwi sa kanila. Ipinakita niya ang mga gamit niya sa pag-aayos ng sirang payong. Binigyan ko siya ng tinapay. Binigyan naman niya ako ng mansanas, hindi raw niya mangunguya ito. Humingi siya ng vit. C. nung Biyernes. Dinalhan ko siya ng konti kahapon.

Mabait naman daw sa kanya ang mga pulis sa checkpoint sa kanto ng 15th Av. at P. Tuazon. Minsan ay binibigyan siya ng pagkain.

Ngayong naka-enhanced quarantine ang lahat, umaasa lamang si Mang Antonio sa kabutihang-loob ng mga nagdaraan.”
