[UPDATE: Some of our readers have expressed a desire to provide financial aid for Lola Luminada. Unfortunately, we don’t know her whereabouts or her contact details. If anyone could help us regarding this, please let us know immediately so that we could refer her to the kind readers who are willing to help.]

When in Manila, we are not new to the ills of our flawed transportation system. Even if we have the right to basic social services such as health and education, these rights are often not met unless we have the money to pay for them ourselves.

These problems have left Lola Luminada Mabini asking strangers for financial aid in order to buy medicine for her injury. She shared to a netizen, Alex Maglalang, how she was injured by a jeepney and was turned away by the health center she visited because they ran out of medicine. Lola Luminda is now asking financial help from the people she meets.

Kanina lang to sa jollibee farmers cubao. Nilapitan kami ni King Serna ni lola LUMINADA MABINI nanghihingi siya ng barya pambili ng gamot niya. Eto ang kwento.

Siya si LUMINADA MABINI 79 years old. Taga GULOD CALOOCAN CITY sa may likod daw ng gulod high school. Tignan niyo yung kanang kamay niya. Nabali tapos pag ginagalaw niya yung kamay niya makikita mo talaga na bali siya binalot lang ng towel. Nasagasaan/nahagip/nabangga daw siya ng jeep sa monumento. Tapos hindi manlang siya pinagamot nung driver pinakasuhan daw nila pero ang nangyari lang is hindi na daw makakapasada yung driver, yun lang. Mag isa lang siya sa bahay niya, mga alagang aso at pusa lang ang kasama niya. Masakit pa daw yung kamay niya kaya siya nanghihingi ng barya pambili ng mga gamot niya, hindi daw siya tinutulungan ng pamilya/kamag-anak niya. Pag nanghingi daw siya sa mga kamag-anak niya madami pa daw nasasabi kaya kung san san siya pumupunta para masustentuhan niya ng gamot yung kamay niya. Pumupunta daw siya sa health cebter para sa gamot niya pero lagi daw sinasabi na naubusan na daw ng gamot. Nakakaawa yung kalagayan niya at ramdam na ramdam din namin yung sitwasyon niya kasi naranasan nadin namin mabalian ng Buto.
