For the past 26 years, Vergelio Bernesto Fernando has been stuck in Mindanao and now he’s calling out for our help.
Facebook page All about the Philippines narrated Vergelio’s story in a post with a few pictures of him. He was originally from Iloilo and only traveled to Mindanao along with other group of men for a contractual job. He was 19 then. However, he was left behind when the men went back to Iloilo.

Vergelio, now 45, has been longing to see his family in Mindanao, but his lack of knowledge and funds for traveling back home prevented him from doing so.
The post is now spreading online. In less than 24 hours, the post garnered 1900 reactions and 2900 shares. Netizens feel sorry for Vergelio and are willing to help. Some even asked for the complete details of his address in the said province.
Some commenters expressed their dismay though, saying that he could’ve done something about his situation a long time ago and that he lacked ‘diskarte’. One online user also suggested to seeking help from local government authorities because there are proper sanctions assigned in this kind of case.
Nonetheless, we wish Vergelio to be able to come back to his home and family.
