Elderly Street Vendor Still Works Despite Condition To Buy Food & Medicine
An elderly street vendor continue to work despite his illness and old age just to earn money to buy food and medicine.
A Facebook user named Daryl Bontia has shared the photos of an elderly vendor identified as Tatay Cirilo who is still working despite his condition. The tear-jerking story of the senior citizen breaks the hearts of the netizens.
Bontia said that the street vendor is hanging the products he is selling on his clothes while looking for possible customers. The old man is roaming around Pasig and even selling his products inside public jeepneys.
Tatay Cirilo Almona continues to work just to earn money to buy food and medicines. His wife and child are reportedly working as house maids and they only meet once a year, according to Bontia.
The concerned netizen said that the senior citizen is also seeking the help of Kuya Will (Willie Revillame) to support his medication. Daryl is also hoping that the netizens would notice his post.

“Pag may nakita kayo na gan’to at may extra naman kayo, just buy. ❤️
Edit: Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng nag PM at gustong tumulong kay tatay, kasama ko po ngayon si tatay galing kami namili sa Super8 sa Rosario. At naibigay ko na po kay tatay yung mga nagpadala,
Si tatay po ay 62 years old, mag Isa sa buhay, nakikittira at nakikitulog sa kaibigan, Wala daw po siyang anak at ang asawa nya naman ay namamasukan pong katulong at once a year lang sila kung magkita ng kanyang asawa,
May sakit din si tatay kaya naghanap buhay siya pambili ng pagkain at gamot. Si tatay po ay taga Rosario Pasig City.
Sa lahat pa po ng gustong tumulong pwede nyo po ako kuntakin or kasi tinuro ni tatay sa akin ang bahay nya, di nya alam number dun basta sabi nya may Ice Plant daw, blue yung color ng gate.
