A tricycle driver in San Fernando, La Union was featured in a news segment produced by ABS-CBN.
As a yearly holiday treat and New Year's gift for his passengers, tricycle driver Rodel Abella offers a 'Libreng Sakay' or free rides for his neighbors in Brgy. Santiago Norte. Rodel dedicates one whole day of free rides for his passengers as his way of paying them back for all their kind deeds to him.
Rodel has been doing this thanksgiving act for 6 years now.
"Ito eh panunukli ko lang sa mga pasaheros, sa mga kabutihan nila sa'min. Kasi sa pasaheros ako nabubuhay" Rodel told Carmela Jimenez of ABS-CBN News.
Inside his small vehicle, Rodel also offered his passengers candies and sweets to help them relax while on the road.
His passengers also shared their opinions about Rodel's act of giving back.
"Nagpapasalamat din ako na kahit papaano, kahit isang taon lang, nalibre ako ng isang beses" One of his passengers said.
Rodel has been a tricycle driver for 20 years and he has managed to send all of his children to school. One of them is now a registered nurse, another one is a radiology technician and one of them is currently taking up business administration.
Additionally, Rodel has received numerous awards for his honesty and integrity.
