Pedicab driver offers free face masks, face shield, alcohol to passengers


Many netizens are now praising a pedicab driver from San Mateo, Rizal for giving  free face masks, face shields and alcohol  to his passengers to help them protect from COVID-19 as they go to work.

According to Camille Vicente, a passenger who shared the good deed of the driver, she happened to ride in the pedicab of Tatay Rogelio Cañares, 56-year-old and experienced his caring initiative.

"Nag-antay ako sa waiting shed ng tricycle tapos dumaan si tatay pedicab driver. Ang ganda ng ngiti ni tatay kaya sumakay ako sa kanya," said Camille.

Inside the pedicab, Camille noted a compartment filled with boxes of face shield and a box of facemasks. There is even a note that says: “Mahal kong pasaheros. ‘Yong papasok sa trabaho na walang face shield. Libre po face shield dito. Face mask. Alcohol.” 

Tatay Rogelio started his simple initiative when a previous passenger of him forgot to bring a face shield and wanted to go home to get one.

"Eh ‘pag binalik ko siya, mamamasahe ulit siya. Napag isip-isip ko na sampung piso lang naman ang face shield, bakit kaya di na lang ako bumili," the pedicab driver shared to Camille.

Tatay Rogelio is able to buy the free supplies by saving a little portion of his earnings from driving a pedicab.

Netizens are now proud and inspired by him because in spite of the fact that he is not earning too much, he still thought of helping others.

“Kung sino pa yung salat, sila pa ang bukas pusong tumutulong. Kudos to you tay. Salute!" said one netizen.
