VIRAL: The Public Servant and The Poor Angels

This viral story will melt your heart. A public servant from Taguig took videos and used the power of social media to help two poor angels.

In a Facebook post on August 9, businessman Lauro German said they found two children with ages of 1 year and half and 3 years old living in a squatters' area beside the C-6 Laguna Lake near the pumping station of Barangay Hagonoy, Taguig City.

The kids, who have not eaten for several days, are living in a shanty with their grandparent, Vergilio Gacuray. Their father, Eddie, has been hooked on drugs since his wife left their home.

On August 10, German posted a video showing them feeding the poor angels and interviewing their grandfather.

In the caption, he called on the local office of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to help the family.

On the second day of their visit, the public servant said the children—one looked filthy and the other had no clothes—have not yet eaten lunch past 2PM. Their father went home early Monday morning but did not stay long.

According to German, the grandfather agreed when they offered to take care of the kids temporarily, but said he would ask the permission of the father first.

German added that personnel from Taguig DSWD and some city area coordinators arrived, gave the kids a bath, and brought them and their grandfather to their relatives in Mercado compound since there is no DSWD shelter in Taguig.
