According to Jeng Alvarez:
Please po pakikalat ito.. Siya po si Mr. Fortunato Mendoza ng San Jose Bayan Occidental Mindoro. Siya po ay nakipagsapalaran sa Maynila para sa kinabukasan ng kanyang pamilya, Nakita ko po siya sa may Balete Drive Brgy. Mariana Quezon City, akala ko po noon gawa gawa lng mga ganitong pangyayari sa social media kaso totoo po pla. Siya po ay na stroke dahil na sa kanyang edad at pagala gala nlng sa kalye, hnd ko po alam kung pano ko po siya matutulungan pero sa pamamagitan ng Facebook bka po sakaling umabot ito sa kaniyang pamilya.. Sana po ay tulungan niyo po akong hanapin ang kaniyang pamilya pra makauwi na rin c tatay, un lng po ang kanyang hiling ang makauwi.. Wala na po syang mga gamit kung hnd dahil sa bigay ng mga taong me mabubuti paring puso..Ultimo wallet nya na kung saan naandun ang cellphone no. ng kanyang pamilya ay kinuha pa ng mga holdaper. Please po tulungan natin c tatay.. kung sa tatay niyo po mangyari ito malamang hnd kayo matatahimik kya sana po isipin natin kung ano ang pkiramdam ng taong nawalan ng ama, kasama sa buhay at ilaw ng tahanan at lalong lalo ung tinatawag natin na “Homeless People”. Sana po ay mkipag cooperate ang sambayanan sa mga ganitong pangyayari dahil mahirap po mawalan ng isang miyembro ng pamilya lalong lalo na po ng ”Ama”. Salamat po. Please Share.
Please spread this. He is Mr. Fortunato Mendoza of San Jose, Occidental Mindoro. He went to Manila to try his luck and for his family’s future. I saw him along Balete Drive in Brgy. Mariana, Quezon City. I thought this only happens in social media but now I know it’s true. He suffered from stroke due to his age and he is wandering the streets. I’m not sure how I can help him but maybe through Facebook, this reaches his family. I hope we can help him so he can go home, that’s all he wants. He owns nothing except those given to him by kind-hearted strangers. Even his wallet where the cellphone number of his family was take by hold-upers. Please let’s help him. If this happened to your father, you won’t have peace of mind for sure so let’s think what it feels to lose a father. I hope we cooperate because it’s really hard to lose a family member especially a father. Thank you. Please share.
As of now, we are trying to find other information on how we can reach Mr. Mendoza. If anyone knows more information, please share them with us. Also, if any of you recognizes him and knows his family, please inform them about this.
Let’s keep spreading the word and let’s bring tatay home.
