While going through this moment filled with grief, Ramon Ang has been consistent in providing aid to affected communities due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Prior to his son’s death, Ramon even expressed his support for the extension of the enhanced community quarantine even if that can affect business and livelihood.
“We can make money again but life, once you lose it, it’s gone forever. So between life and money, I’d choose life,” he said.
