Proving that anyone can help and be generous no matter how rich or poor they are, 64-year-old Nanay Angelita Astor has become the first regular donor to “Duterte’s Kitchen” despite being ‘just’ a small-time vendor!
Nanay Angelita earned the praise of netizens for her generosity even if she also does not have a lot of money herself!
In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, the official page of Duterte’s Kitchen shared the story of how Nanay Angelita became a donor.
Noong hindi pa kilala itong Duterte’s Kitchen, madalas ko na rin nakakasalamuha ang mga batang pumupunta at kumakain dito. Paano ba naman eh ‘ung pwesto ko ay nasa tabi lang nitong Kitchen, kaya madalas ‘ung kasangkapan na sinasahog sa pagluluto ng lugaw ay sa akin na binibili. Minsan naman binibigay ko na lang bilang tulong na rin.
(At the time when Duterte’s Kitchen wasn’t well known yet, I had already spent time with the children who go and eat there. Since my selling spot is near the Kitchen, the staff often buy the ingredients of the porridge from me. Sometimes when they come here to buy, I just give it to them as a form of help [for the Kitchen].
Masarap sa pakiramdam ‘ung magbigay lalo pa ngayon hindi lang bawang at sibuyas ‘ung maari kung ibahagi. Makakapagbigay na rin ako ng iba pang gulay na maari nilang ulamin.
It feels good to share to others, especially now that I can give more than just garlic and onions because I can also share some vegetables.)
Isn’t it so wonderful that people like Nanay Angelita share what they can to help others even if they also need help? No wonder her story and her generosity earned the praise of thousands of netizens across the country.
Kudos to you, Nanay Angelita Astor!
