Old people should not have to work just to be able to survive day by day. With their already fragile and weak bodies, old people should be at home, relaxing as they reminisce about their old life and take care of their grandchildren.
However, that is not the case for Tatay Bel Garsiano who has to walk from Ohaw, General Santos City to Saranggani Province every day for a living.
The old man has to sell ice drops. Even worse, aside from his old age, Tatay Bel was also born with a disability.
According to the netizen who shared his story on the popular Facebook page Matalinong Matsing, the old man was born with a paralyzed left hand and foot.
"Siya po si tatay Bel Garsiano. Nakita po namin sya sa may hi-way ng linao tinoto papuntang Gensan, bandang 11:30[a.m.] ng umaga. Napansin naming nagiisa sya habang bitbit ang malaking icebox. Paralisado ang kanyang kaliwang kamay at paa. Pero ang sabi nya pinanganak na raw sya ganun."
"Siya po ay taga crossing Ohaw, General santos City. Nilalakad lang mula crossing ohaw papuntang Maasim Sarangani Province para mkapagbenta ng mga nilalako icedrops.Sana po kung sino man sa atin ang may puso at magandang loob..."
